2016 A Haunting Halloween

Carve-free Pumpkins

Carve-free pumpkins seem to be gaining momentum over the past couple of years, so I thought I’d see what all the excitement is about. Though I love the aroma of these fragrant orange melons and baking their seeds whilst carving, I have to admit this was a lot of fun, too!  Turned out that this was a lot less mess, and the possibilities were endless.  These are pictures of several I did over the course of a couple of hours.  I found most of the paraphernalia in our Halloween boxes: googly eyes, tiaras, fake eyelashes, mice, snakes, stencils, witch hats, masks and left over crystal spider pins from three years ago … the end result is amusing and unique.
