This weekend a lot of people will be carving pumpkins. But instead of the classic Spooky Face why not do some ladylike carving.
Here is a really cute idea found on Family Circle and it goes with my post from yesterday about unconventional candle holders. Instead of leaving the top of the pumkin intact with the lid, cut it off, scallop the edges and add some detail and you will have beautiful pumpkin candle holder. These would also look great sitting on your steps or on a table on your porch for Halloween and they will also give off more light than the classic enclosed jack-o-lantern.
Here are some more ladylike patterns from Country Living
Check back soon for pictures of our own pumpkin carving experience this weekend.
We are going to be using templates for the first time and hope that it goes well!
