233  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Mario and Luigi Pumpkin (with stencil) on: October 01, 2010 10:23:07 AM

So sorry it's not a real pumpkin.  This one's made from a foam pumpkin that was given to me to carve for the annual carnival at my son's school.  I use the same process for carving real pumpkins:

1) Draw an image onto a piece of paper that will fit on the pumpkin
2) Tape the image on the pumpkin
3) Use a thumbtack to puncture small holes along the lines to be carved
4) Remove paper and carve (I use a knife specifically for pumpkin-carving -- got it at the craft store)
5) Make a hole at the bottom of the pumpkin to fit an LED light (also purchased at the craft store)
6) Lastly, clean up.  Have a vacuum cleaner handy.  This was my first time carving foam, and there was a lot of debris.  Actually, I was thinking I should have worn a mask because the serrated knife makes a lot of dust.

Here's a rough stencil that can be used.  Areas marked in red are where the pumpkin should be carved out.

"last night I had a dream I was ketchup and you were mustard.......which is really weird 'cause in my dreams you're mayonnaise''  Grin

This was my son's halloween costume last year.  He never really picks overly popular characters, so who knows what he'll ask for this year.

Just finished crocheting these based on the free pattern found here: http://tiny.cc/zv1mc
I chose the colors because I couldn't wait for fall.  The vintage buttons are a purchase I was giddy over at a collectibles show.
Buttons are my weakness.

Oh, this is an adorable idea! How clever!! I have a grip of clothes I've saved because of memories or uniqueness. This is something even a teen would like. Thank you for sharing!

You're welcome... I made this doll after raiding my own closet.  I named her Slumber because she's so sleepy after a life of being an over-worn blouse.  A modern twist on a primitive doll:
