With Halloween coming around, many of us tackle the tradition of carving pumpkins. I have always enjoyed carving them...or so I thought. My jack-o-lanterns have never been great creations of art and so this year I decided to tackle something a little more complex. I even went out and bought a special Pumpkin-Carving Dremel tool from some hardware store. I spent hours scouring over the internet to find the PERFECT design.
Then I started carving the pumpkin. Not only was the dremel tool a bust (I'm sure it works great for some people) but I realized that I lack the patience to carve an elaborate pumpkin. So I settled upon one of the patterns I had deemed too "EASY" for me to undertake. Turns out it was the PERFECT way to go.
I LOVE this Jack-o-Lantern. I only had to cut out the windows and the moon, and then I painted in the house. SO easy! Did I mention that I love to paint? Much more so that I like to carve, so this way I got an elegant design without spending all those frustrating hours carving it out. And I like that it looks cool during the daytime as well! Looks like this is how I will be carving pumpkins from here on out.
