Pumpkin Carving Ideas?

Post by jadewik » Mon Oct 22, 2012 1:34 pm

Every year since 1997, I've designed a new carving pattern... This year, I've been so behind and busy with the soap-opera of real-life drama that I haven't managed to sit down and think of something to carve.

If there anyone out there who has looked and looked for a pumpkin pattern, but hasn't found a (free) pattern that "works" for you? LET ME KNOW! I'd love to take a crack at it. Please post any suggestions you may have-- but there can only be ONE (that's all I can manage in the time left 'till Halloween).

You can find some of my patterns here:

Thanks in advance for the ideas. =)

We seem to be in a zombie renaissance. How about a moaning decapitated head, something like the one in 'Return of the Living Dead 2'?

NICE WORK!
Last night 'twas witching Hallowe'en
Dearest; an apple russet- brown
I pared, and thrice above my crown
Whirled the long skin; they watched in keen;
I flung it far; they laughed and cried me shame
Dearest, there lay the letter of your name!
