Halloween is a wonderful time to unleash your creativity. From spectacularly ghoulish home décor to frighteningly fun costumes, there is a lot that you and your family can do to celebrate this holiday. Since Halloween is never complete without a traditional carved pumpkin displayed on your front porch or lawn, here are a few elegant pumpkin carving ideas you may want to try.
Update the traditional Jack-o’-lantern by incorporating gold lamé paper into the design. Dabbing the lamé paper all over the body of the carved pumpkin peppers the surface with gold flecks, imparting sophistication into the simplest designs. When coupled with a lighted candle placed inside, the flecks add an attractive shimmer for a luminous yet spooky effect.
Depart from the usual ghoulish faces and carve beautiful images on your pumpkin instead. With the help of stencils, you can carve breathtaking silhouettes that cast artistic shadows upon your home’s exterior. These interesting masterpieces add a striking visual element that will enchant your guests.
