Pumpkin Carving Ideas for 2013
The Funny, The Clever, The Scary, and The Classy. Are you looking for something fun to do this Halloween? Check out our Pumpkin Carving Ideas for 2013 and try something new this fall. Fun, creative, and easy for all ages and skill levels!
The Funny: Monster’s Inc Eyeball
Monster’s University was a huge hit at the box office this year. Carving a pumpkin out of one of the characters like Mike Wazowski, might be a really fun idea to do with a younger child. Not too detailed either, Mike is a simple idea where you don’t have to be a “Michelangelo” to carve it.
Pumpkin Carving Ideas for 2013 Helpful Tip: Don’t spend extra money on pre-made stencils from the store this year, just look for your favorite picture online and print it off. Then tape it onto the pumpkin and punch out an outline with a thumbtack. Remember it’s supposed to be fun, so who cares if it’s not perfect.
The Clever: A really clever pumpkin carving idea for 2013 would be the Hamburger Pumpkin. Sure to be a hit with anyone who sees it, the Hamburger idea with the pumpkin seeds glued to the top will sure to be the talk of your block this year. No need to use real hamburger meat or fixings that could attract unwanted neighborhood pests. Instead try visiting the local thrift shop or finding household items to replace the things like lettuce and the meat. Painted coffee can lids make perfect tomatoes!
The Scary: This year instead of letting your child dress up as once famed Disney Channel TV star, Miley Cyrus, we suggest you let them do a pumpkin carving of her instead. Not only will a Miley Cyrus pumpkin carving be the perfect finishing touch on any scary Halloween décor theme, it should also convince the younger crowd to not follow in her footsteps. What kid wants a role model that ends up as a pumpkin carving?
The Classy: Get creative this year and break away from the traditional carving ideas. Try using spray paint or stenciling to jazz up your fall decorations. Some really easy ideas for all ages to participate would be to use general masking tape and tape out a funky design or an eye catching pattern. Once you have taped up your pumpkin the way you like it, chose your favorite color and spray paint the entire pumpkin. Other original ideas are to grab some type of scraper and carve a design, try different tools and create a unique texture of your own! Do you like these ideas?
