We have a special guest blogger today, Kristin, from Wife Of Wimsey. Kristin wanted to share a fun tutorial today on how to carve your own foam pumpkin! These pumpkins are great... they last year after year and you can customize away. And yes, YOU can make your very own too!
Let's get started...
You will need:
- A FOAM pumpkin to carve (no real pumpkins)
- Walnut Hollow Versa Tool Kit
- Straight pin with a large head
- Name or shape you wish to carve on regular paper, cut or printed to size
Here's the how to:
First, create a design for your pumpkin.
You can print your design off on your computer, or use your Cricut, Cameo or other die cutting machine to cut out a shape you wish to carve. Kristin decided to carve her son's name here.
Keep in mind, the larger your design, the larger pumpkin you will need. Though you can get intricate detailed cuts, you may want to save those for real pumpkins! Trim your design down so it fits comfortably on your pumpkin.
Tape your design to your pumpkin:
There are so many possibilities! And they turn out great!
