A Batty Halloween 31st October

Batty Pumpkin

A Batty Halloween! 31st October when I carved a Batty pumpkin for the Halloween celebrations.

Please feel free to use the bat design for future Halloweens!

How to create a Batty Pumpkin

A.There are 3 ways to transfer the design to the pumpkin

1.To draw on the pumpkin free hand with a water based pen – so that the lines can be easily wiped off with a tissue.

2. Draw your design on paper but first hold the paper in front of the pumpkin so that you get an idea of size for the design.

3.This is the way I did It -Print the design on a A4 white label and stick the label on the pumpkin.

B. You can get really spooky effects by letting the light through the pumpkin in varying intensity -in other wording not cutting right through the pumpkins shell.

1. To do this you can use a cocktail stick, shape a used long match to a point or use a pencil.

2. On the Bat –I used this effect on his eyes, ears and smiley mouth. Please see the grey areas on the    design.

C. The black areas need to be cut out completely including the little triangular areas for the shiny fangs.

D. Tip - When carving a pumpkin always start in the middle of the design with the small tricky bits. Please choose carefully where you place your pumpkin, making sure it’s away from flammable materials. And remember never forget to blow out the candle in the pumpkin before you go to bed.

Hope you had a Happy Hallowweeeeeeeen!
