Halloween : The Tinkerbell Pumpkin

tinkerbell pumpkin tutorial
Can you believe that at the grand old age of 28 I had never carved a pumpkin in my life? Clearly I had a very deprived childhood.
I saw several Tinkerbell pumpkins doing the rounds on facebook and decided that it was time to de-seed my first pumpkin. My niece loves Tinkerbell and I cannot wait to see her face when she visits me and sees my attempt.
The Tinkerbell design was surprisingly easy to create. I cut the top off and emptied all the yuckiness out to start. I printed this stencil after finding it on Google. I sellotaped the paper to the pumpkin and used a pin to dot around the edges of the character. My thumb did start aching at this point but I persisted. Once you have finished dotting the outline the fun begins. Remove the paper and use a knife to join the dots. I then used one of Spencer’s drill bits to add the ‘fairy dust’. Make sure you use the right size for this, the first set of dots I did were too small and didn’t glow up.

P.S. Sorry for the very poor quality photos, it is rather difficult taking photos in the dark!

    Looks awesome, great job. I've carved a pumpkin only once, and it was an epic fail lol x
