Pumpkin Carving & Decorating

I wanted to share this pumpkin I carved and now I am so shouting (in my head) "Look what I can do!" 
I Love Love the way it turned out.


I got the 9" pumpkin from Michaels. I was not sure how hard it would be to carve but it was made easier because I used a Walnut Hallow Heat tool with Creative Hot Knife Point. And Used a stencil I Googled. The hot knife is definitely the key. Make it so much easier to get through this foam pumpkin. Once everything was carved out I added Yellow, Espresso, Bright Green and Copper tinsel Glitters. Really made it pop. Love the little owls.

Then of course my daughter wanted to join in so she made a pumpkin with freckles to look like me.
The back says Mom on it. too cute.
Here are a few more pumpkins I experimented with.
I used Glitters , Stickles and Micro Glass Beads.
