Pumpkin Carving

23 Oct

Hi friends!  First, I want to say thank you for your kind response to my Christmas Project!  You all were so sweet and we had such a great response!  So thank you!  Also, let me know if you have any questions about custom designs or ordering.  All the designs can be customized to your preferred wording and colors.  Can’t wait to see the designs you choose.  Anyone have a favorite?

Ok, on to other things.  Today I want to show you the pumpkin Jonathan and I carved.

We chose Harry Potter because, well, we both LOVE Harry Potter and it seemed so festive!

After we carved our HP pumpkin we watched the final Harry Potter movie and roasted pumpkin seeds.  It was magical.

One other thing I wanted to highlight, was that we used the silhouette effect where the candle light shows through the negative space instead of through the letters.  I had never done this technique before but I really liked it.  The Ruche blog has some great printable stencils for carving pumpkins that I think would be really cute for carving your pumpkins this way that you can find here.

Happy pumpkin carving friends!
