Happy Halloween!
My mom has been carving intricate pumpkins ever since I was little (and waaay before they made those nifty kits too), and she's passed along her supplies to me.  For the past few years, we all get together on a weekend close to halloween and all carve our own pumpkins.  This year, I decided that we spend too much time carving a real pumpkin, just to have it die a week or so later.....so my boyfriend and I went out and got the fake pumpkins from Michaels and went from there.
We're both huge Disney fans, so ours had a distinctive Disney feel to them.  I made a small one for my sisters dorm too---we both have Wranglers and are obsessed with all things Jeep---she also loves leopard print, so hers is decoupaged with leopard print tissue paper with a single jeep cut out of the middle.

Enough talking....on to the pics.  Here are all three.  Mine is on the left, my sisters in the front, and my boyfriends on the right.


Here is my sisters before I finished (I just like how the picture came out)


Here is my sisters after I painted the cut edge:


Here's mine....just solid mickeys cut all the way around like a lantern. It casts cool shadows on the walls and ceilings.  I gave up with the stupid little knives and used a dremmel to cut mine out....lol


And my boyfriends...he used a pattern from a Disney book.  Its mickey dressed up in a cape.


haha....myself and the dremmel:


thanks for looking! Happy Haunting!

Those are awesome!!  Were those fake pumpkins easier to carve than regular ones?  My favorite is the Jeep!

That's really neat!  Decoupaging a pumpkin is a really smart idea that I never would have thought of.

They'll name a city after us-and later say it's all our fault.

Thanks--I'm kind of partial to the Jeep one too....I craft lots of Jeep items!

They were easier to carve in the sense that you don't have to go scooping all the goop out of them, but as far as the actual carving, it was probably the same.  These were tough styrofoam. I have had some pumpkins (different brands I guess) that cut like butttaahhh.

It wasn't bad at all though.....but the dremmel was fun! It just made an enourmous amount of dust....I carved outside so it was all good.

Thanks for the compliments!
