FOAM CARVABLE PUMPKINS


Mom and I have lost count, but we think she has carved approximately 125 pumpkins over the last seven years. I did a post on her pumpkins from 2009, explaining that Mom uses the "carvable" foam pumpkins and Pumpkin Masters patterns. After she finishes carving the pumpkin, she traces around a quarter coin on the bottom back of the pumpkin and cuts a hole for the light.


The trick or treaters and neighbors look forward to the display each year, and people come from all over to see them. Our local TV station also features them. This year, she set them up in her three stall garage so the kiddos can visit and stay warm and dry! Halloween weather is very unpredictable in our area. Sometimes it snows :-(








Here are some photos from previous years.

















If you have a favorite, I'd love to know.

  10. What a great idea to put them in a place where the kids can admire them and warm up a bit! Congratulations to your mom for sharing all of her hard work. I wonder where she stores them all??? :)

  12. I am going to be your mom some day. I think that carving pumpkins is my favorite part, okay so staring at them when I am done, of Halloween. I love them all and grouped like that is sooooo amazing. I have only used real pumpkins, but these look so fab! A friend gave us a yellow fleshed watermelon the other day, and my son carved on it like a pumpkin. It was kind of fun. Joni
