Happy Halloween friends, it is that time of year and many of us will be carving the Halloween Pumpkins, just figured I would open a thread to show off your talents!

My son and his Gf are coming over tonight to carve some pumpkins.

After the carving I will post some pictures for you to enjoy.

I am also open to any good links to patterns and any Jack-o-Lanterns you find on the Internet worthy of taking a look at.

This will fun, I will start with a picture of the Pumpkins we will be using.

Boy I tell you when you have pumpkins you have friends.

Let the Carving begin!

Great detail...

And we have only just begun. We truly are Pumpkin Blessed this year. So far we have been able to share our abundance with others and still plenty to carve and enjoy, eat, freeze and seed save.

COOL! You have far more holiday spirit than I this year!
My older children will all be working, and since I'm taking the younger ones out trick or treating, there won't be anyone home to give out candy.

I did however buy a couple of cute little plastic ones to put in the window, and a few treats just in case I get a couple of kids at my door before I go out, or after I get back.

Here is one I just had to share, a pumpkinhead carving a pumpkin (and the spooky house he carved is my favorite, long after everyone left the table, he was still at it. I will get a picture up of his soon.

Sweet! Very cool Jack o Lanterns!!
Looks like some good time family fun! I can remember the days of past carving pumpkins up with my family..
These are the times to cherish those good times and the memories.. These days come and go so fast!

I wish I had a picture to share, but I have not gotten my pumpkin yet.
But when I do.. Im going to Carve a B in the side of its face, and give my pumpkin a fake black eye, and call it, the Todd Pumpkin!

Awesome thread!

This is our pumpkin, my girlfriend carved it and I did the blood. It is a craft pumpkin. The pattern was from zombie pumpkins, while there are more complex patterns, she wanted to try the easier one first, because it was her first craft pumpkin. I think it turned out well. We both are big horror fans.

Here it is, the Jason Voorhees Jack-o-Lantern:

Oh wow, great pumpkins you guys! I loved them all but the winking pumpkin was SOO cute and the Jason, well if my kids see that one they are going to be jealous. Zy hurry and get your up! cant wait to see the twisted pumpkin you'll come up with.

I have sevearal more to share, just have not done it yet. Heres another one of a smokin' head...

I think dry ice would be better...

Edit to say that Jason pumpkin is perfectly shaped, and was it thin inside or did you thin it out? How long did you spend on the project? And are you going to enter it in competition? I went to the college in Springfields contest and there were none as good as the ones both of you have posted above... 500 first and 100 second prize.

There was one haunted house that was awesome, it had sticks in the windows like bars or something, very cool. Its neat when you incorporate different things into the pumpkins.

Thank you very much!!! Your pumpkin is awesome too!!

The Jason pumpkin is a craft pumpkin, and they come pretty thin, so she didn't touch the inside of the pumpking at all, she carved a hole in the bottom to fit a light into, and thats it. It took her about 2 hours to carve, in the process getting ill from breathing in the debris. I would recommend anyone who is carving a craft pumpkin, to use a dust mask. She learned the hard way.

Then, I just made some homemade blood, spattered it on, and let it drip from the knife opening. It was pretty simple, for me anyways, she had the harder part.

I don't plan on entering it in a competition, but if I saw one, I might. We have another craft pumpkin, and a few real ones we are going to carve, I will post the results.

Thanks for the compliments!!!!

edit to add

Here is a link to Zombie Pumpkins, this is where I got the pattern. They have a alot of really cool patterns there.

***DUH*** I really did not know what a craft pumpkin was... Now I understand, so can you still put a candle in it of will it go up in flames?

I would love to buy a few for the yearly decorations. But you know that gives me an idea, we could take pictures of the best of the years Jack-o-lanterns and enlarge prints then bring those out to decorate the walls each year.

I love fall and all of the wonderful colors, the woodstove smell, cinnamon in the air and lots of hot coco!

posted on Oct, 27 2008 @ 05:53 PM
That is an awesome idea!! I love fall as well, best time of the year.

You can't put a real candle in it, but you can buy little battery operated candles that don't get hot, and gives the same affect as a flickering flame. It looks good, and the craft pumpkin won't rot, and I can reuse it next year. But I still like old fashion carving process better, with a real pumpkin.

It is all good as I see it you have an excellent point about being able to reuse year after year, and you can see how your craft gets better in time, excellent pumpkin, and it must look very real at night. BTW I like the feel of your home, just that little area looks so homey and clean, uncluttered and zen, my dream... You see my house is erm, lived in...

posted on Oct, 27 2008 @ 06:04 PM
Thanks!! Its cluttered too, thats why I took that picture in that spot. lol. Its impossible for the house not to be.
