Mama, it's Halloween.
There's candy I must eat.
Ring the doorbell, trick-or-treat.

Mama, my pumpkin is done.
But now it's gonna mold and rot away.

A closer peek at the new themed mascot for this Halloween, who is reminding you that a revolution is coming. The Zombie Pumpkins website will soon be transforming to include new merchandise, and of course, new pumpkin carving patterns!

It's just a carve to the left, and a slice to the right. Cut out holes with your blade, and use a can...

Re: Cross Stitch, anyone?

That's great! You might not look like a typical cross stitcher, but I can see how it's a fun hobby. Similar to pumpkin carving, you can zone out while you work on it. It's relaxing, passes the time, and when you're done you have a piece of art you can be proud of. I've never tried it myself, but som...

Re: Circus theme Halloween for 2022

I love a good theme for a Halloween party and costumes. And the creepy circus is a fun idea that you haven't done yet. As usual, you can reuse a lot of general decorations, the giant clown mouth, balloons and tents will instantly set the right scene. For some reason, the image of vintage Halloween c...

Now I must make a Frankstein monster side profile, so they can be placed side by side, be facing each other.

What heat setting do you use? With my Walnut Hollow Creative Versa Tool, I usually turn the heat all the way up to max. I just assume hotter means easier cutting right? And indeed, it melts the foam and cuts like butter. But I would just advise that you keep the blade moving. At high heat, it's mor...

The pumpkin patterns files are intended to print on a standard letter sized sheet of paper, 8.5 x 11 inches. The actual design (that you'll cut out of the pumpkin) varies, depending on the character/image. But generally, they're about 8 - 8.5 inches in their longest direction. This size seems to wor...

Portercat, that makes too much sense. :grin: Grinding the back edge so you don’t have to sharpen a new cutting edge. Now I feel dumb for not thinking of that myself!

We talked about this on Facebook, but for the sake of public education... The tool I use to cut most foam pumpkins is the Walnut Hollow Creative Versa Tool (available in craft stores and on Amazon). It's technically a wood burning tool, but it has interchangeable tips. I'm using the tip that's like ...
