Halloween Pumpkin Carving

Posted October 12, 2012

Hey all,
This time of year is always my favorite!  The cold weather starts moving in, I pull out all of my favorite scarves, sweaters and boots from the bottom of my closet and go outside to find all the different shades of leaves. After going to Starbucks and getting a grande Pumpkin Spice Latte, with whipped cream, of course. 
But one of my favorite things to do at the beginning of fall is decorating for Halloween. I have always loved carving pumpkins, buying fake spider webs and stringing them around the windows and fireplace. This year I want to top what I’ve done before. My goal is create the scariest/funnest/unique looking pumpkin all of my neighbors and soon to be trick-or-treaters will be talking about for weeks! It may take a couple of tries but I think I can do it! I want you to see my creations but first I need your help!
If you have any suggestions on how to carve or decorate pumpkins, tools to use, stencils, etc. please comment on this blog! You can tweet us at @sharaspaperie too!
If you have any requests for pumpkin carving or decorating let me know that as well! Be as creative as possible!
Thanks for your help and for leaving your comments!
