I read it was possible, but I was a little bit skeptical.
My other half was admittedly very skeptical. But we decided to give it a try anyway...
Pumpkin #2: Carving a Pumpkin Using Cookie Cutters
(Have you ever tried taking a photo of a candle-lit pumpkin....it isn't easy...so please don't judge the not-so-great photos!)
Of course you first need to cut the top, and clean the insides of the pumpkin.
You will also want to scrap down the inside of the pumpkin where you plan to carve until it is only about 1" thick, or about the thickness of your cookie cutter.
Taking a hammer or mallet, hammer the cookie cutter into the pumpkin as far as you can.
Once it is all the way in the pumpkin, you may need to grab your pliers to get it out.
Then carefully, push the cut area out!
Repeat for the rest of the pumpkin until you are satisfied with your design!
I LOVE how clean the edges of my bats are in this pumpkin. No knife or carving tool could ever have gotten such a clean and consistent cut!
This was also a VERY easy way to carve a pumpkin and I LOVE my final results!
So I want to know, what is the weirdest way you have ever carved your pumpkin?
