Want to level up on your pumpkin decor this year? This is a good beginner project for trying your hand at pumpkin carving!
It’s pumpkin season again and soon we’ll be seeing lots of different pumpkin decors around the neighbourhood. But of all the decor ideas, pumpkin carvings are always the most impressive.
If you’ve ever tried to carve pumpkins you know how difficult and messy it can get. Good thing there are artificial pumpkins, just like the one used in this DIY project! Artificial pumpkins are easier to carve and definitely less messy. And unlike real pumpkins, they last forever so you can use your decor for many more years after. We also love that you can always glue pieces back together in case you drop and break your artificial pumpkin. :)
Don’t have artificial pumpkins in your local stores? You can get one from Amazon instead.
Now you can finally make your very own successful pumpkin carving!
