This evening marked our first ever pumpkin carving experience. It was fun. We went to the pumpkin carving event hosting by the Mac Outdoors club, filled ourselves with yummy desserts and took a knife to a very orange pumpkin.
It was freezing! Mark didn’t want to get his stylish new jacket covered in pumpkin guts – so he braved to cold… but it was very cold. We decided on a design we saw in the little book that came with the tools, and then I drew it free-hand. It was surprisingly even to carve the pumpkin, even in th dark. The type is like nothing I have ever seen in Australia – much softer. I don’t think you could carve a butternut!
I think for two Aussies who have never made a light out of a pumpkin before… we did a good job! I am trying to think of ideas for my next creative carve… But for now, enjoy some shots of our little spooky friend:
