These three pictures are my pumpkins from the last three Halloweens. I am not one to
carve out the skin of the pumpkins and carve faces. I like to add different things to it that
I can find and kind of make it look 3d. My favorite things to use are glue on nails ( wich I
use mainly for teeth. The eyeballs are ping pong balls (I can either find them in white or
luckely they also come in orange. The other thing I like to use are bamboo skewers, I usually
use them for the hair or in the instance of one of them I used them through the nose. I also have used
staples, usually when I put a cut or scar in them I use them to look like stiching.
Most of the stuff I use I get from the Dollar store or Walmart. Ping pong balls are easy to work
with they can be turned at any angle. To hold them in I will dril a small hole in both sides and use
either a tooth pick or a skewer to hold them in. The fake finger nails, I use for teeth and to make
them look different, like sharp or jagged, I used a pair of scissors to cut them.
I love having one large pumpkin head and using smaller pumpkins as the young ones.
Pumpkins eating their young, isn't that what Halloween is all about! I sometimes refer to the smaller
pumkins like popcorn chicken. You can never get enough!! So far my favorite one is the very first one
in the pictures. I did that one for Halloween 2009. He's my cannibal pumpkin with the skewers through
the nose and in the top like a mohawk. His hands are just the right size for keeping a couple extra small
pumkins for an after dinner snack!!! HE! HE! HE!
