As promised here are the Wealie Household’s 2010 Halloween pumpkins. Three pumpkins were carved this week with Ben’s son Dylan down to stay. We’ve been very industrious in creating our Halloween decorations and a pumpkin costume for Dylan. I’ll upload some pictures tomorrow of Ben’s bats, Dylan’s Spiders, the great big spider web on the ceiling and the pumpkin costume I made for Dylan.
This first picture is of all three pumpkins in a row, Dylan’s happy Jack design, my intricate doodle design and Dylan’s scary Jack.
Here’s Dylan’s happy Jack O’ Lantern – Dylan drew the design and with Ben’s help he carved out the pumpkin and cut in the design.
Dylan chose his scary Jack O’ Lantern design from the pattern book that came with the pumpkin carving tools. He carved out the innards mostly on his own (though with a bit of help from his Dad Ben), he also marked out all the design and with a bit of help from Ben and I carved out the design. It turned out very effective I think, brings to mind demons in the fires of hell!
And finally we have my doodle pumpkin, which got it’s name due to the fact that it’s covered in carved versions of the doodles that I mostly do with pen and ink, paint and canvas! As the design goes all the way around the pumpkin I took several photos, but rather than put all the photos here I’ve uploaded my favourite and put the rest on flickr. However, this is not all – I also created a silly little video which has all the pictures of my pumpkin and a little Happy Halloween message.
Have a fantastic Halloween everyone.
Tread safely in the light and find me in the newborn night.
