Halloween, Tyler

How We Carved the Primrose Pumpkin!

Pumpkin carving is a great activity to do in the lead up to Halloween and if pulled off correctly, you can get some amazing designs. As it is getting closer and closer to Halloween, we thought it would be a great idea to carve the Primrose flower into a pumpkin to create the Primrose Pumpkin to get into the spooky spirit!

The first thing we decided to do was head down to the shops and grab all the equipment we needed to carve. This included:

-A pumpkin
-Two knives, one big and one small
-A safety knife
-A spoon
-A pen
-A bowl

Then we drew out our logo onto the pumpkin. This is so we had an outline to follow when it was time to carve it.

Next step was the messiest part of all; cutting the top off the pumpkin and scooping out all of the seeds and fibres using the spoon (and hands!) and then discarding it into a bowl.

Now that is done and out of the way, it’s time to start carving our Primrose Pumpkin! Using the outline that we drew earlier, we carefully then cut through the pumpkin following the outline by using the knives we listed. This required a lot of concentration as you can tell…
