Carving Pumpkins

Carving pumpkins is a tradition that has continued for decades. But now there are so many cool tools to help us with this creative endeavor. I chose to polka dot, paint, and glitter my little pumpkin. I used a small circle shape from our pumpkin carving kit to stamp the shape into the flesh of the pumpkin then carefully cut out each little circle using the serated knife also provided in the kit. I found some silver acrylic craft paint in the cupboard. So I gave pumpkin a quick first coat then sprinkled with silver glitter and topped it with a bow. Ta-da!

 So many moms out trick-or-treating went ga-ga over this fancy pumpkin. It was a hoot.
