Halloween Pumpkin Carving

Popcorn & Chocolate Pumpkins

One of my all time favorite fall time activities is pumpkin carving. I can remember carving pumpkins ever since I was a wee little one. My whole family gets really into it each year and we end up buying a ton of pumpkins just to carve. We use the Pumpkin Masters carving patterns to make our jack-o-lanterns. These patterns really make our otherwise plain pumpkins into great pumpkin masterpieces. I think I would still be doing the two triangle eyes and zig-zag mouth if I didn’t have these patterns to go of off (not that there is anything wrong with a classic pumpkin!) My family has a stockpile of older carving stencils because some of the best patterns are in their older books.

My mom stuck to a witch theme this year

This past weekend, Rose and I made a trip up to New Hampshire in part to see the gorgeous fall foliage but also in a bigger part to carve pumpkins! My mom had about 12 pumpkins waiting for us when we arrived. Here are the lovely and spooky jack-o-lanterns that we made:

It was so hard to choose which pattern to use because my family has so many good ones!
