If you’ll be decorating or carving pumpkins this Halloween, try using the stem as a nose! 🎃
All you have to do is place the pumpkin on its side and plan out the rest of the face around the stem. Popsicle sticks or toothpicks that have been cut up make cute teeth. I also used a couple decorative pebbles for the eyes.
Please note that pumpkin carving isn’t my strongest talent, which is why these overly simple designs work best for me! lol 😉
Use what you have on hand to carve or shave pumpkins…
- I carved a circle on the opposite side of stem in order to scrape the insides and then placed a corn on the cob holder on the outside for a “handle” so it’s easy to open and shut to insert a candle or tea light.
- A melon baller is a great tool to scrape out circular shaped eyes. Super easy to accomplish!
- Use the end of a potato peeler to scrape out hard to reach places.
*Note: The cute witch headband can be found in store at Walgreens and lights up!
