Tried it Tuesday-Pumpkin Style

Happy Tuesday! I'm excited to link up with Holly today for Tried it Tuesday!

This week isn't exactly a teaching post. What I tried this week was pumpkin carving. Growing up we would carve pumpkins for Halloween, but those pumpkins were the classic Jack-o-Lantern face.

My husband on the other hand creates pumpkins like this:

His pumpkin from the 1st year we were married.

So this year, he and I worked to create pumpkins based off the movie Nightmare Before Christmas.

What do you think of our handiwork? Mine is on the left, Glen's is on the right. What have you tried this week?


  1. Wow! I'm so impressed! I can't even tell you the last time I carved a pumpkin!

  3. They look great!! I tried my hand at an Angry Birds pumpkin over the weekend, but it didn't turn out nearly as good as these did!

  4. Oh my. If Jack-o-lanterns looked that good at my house, we would definitely line the sidewalk!!! Gorgeous.

  5. Those are great! My guy carved an angry bird into our pumpkin...but we had a template!


  6. I am always AMAZED when I see pumpkins carved like a piece of artwork. My jaw just about dropped to the floor when I saw your husband's from the first year you were married!! Wow!

  7. I will admit I am extremely jealous of your talent! Pumpkin art like this amazed me every year. You and your husband have amazing talent.

  8. These are awesome! Did you use a template? I love Pumpkin Masters, but my carving has become more simpler now that we have to do two. Last year I did Dora's backpack for my youngest and carved a butterfly that my oldest drew :)
