I realized Halloween is drawing near and I have yet to decorate any pumpkins. What is a craftier to do?
First I found an easy project to do with my nieces and nephew. I let them glue the mouth on instead of pinning it in place. It worked okay.
For my own artistic enjoyment I looked for carved pumpkin templates for some help.
It was during this search I found an awesome pumpkin sculptor Ray Villafane. You can have a custom pumpkin for only$400 plus the overnight shipping costs (if you see the detail put in his work believe me you would not complain about the price). His sculptures include toys, sand, and pumpkins and all with the most remarkable detailing.
You can also buy prints and tools at his site villafanestudios.com.
