Som jeg nævnte forleden stod weekenden blandt andet på lidt græskar-snitteri. Men med en (stor) baby i familien tog de så lige lidt mere end en weekend at få gjort færdige. I går aftes kunne vi så endelig få lys i dem. Det var simpelthen så hyggeligt at lave dem sammen og de pynter sådan ved vores hoveddør.

Jeg fik en del spørgsmål på Instagram om, hvordan jeg havde lavet mit med bladene (Mads har lavet dét med gravstenen og vores husnummer), og det var egentlig super nemt. Jeg tegnede bare omridset af nogle forskellige blade og tegnede lidt detaljer på i frihånd. Og så var det ellers bare at skære omridset ud og lirke overfladen fri. Vi købte for nogle år siden to små hobbyknive med udskiftelige blade, og de er helt perfekte til formålet. Men jeg tror også sagtens, en almindelig hobbykniv kan bruges. Og så har de til slut fået en gang atamon, så de forhåbentlig holder lidt længere.

As I mentioned last Friday, we were planning on carving some Halloween pumpkins during the weekend. However, with a baby (well, actually a toddler I guess) in the family, it took us a couple of attempts to finish the project. But last night, we were finally able to light up and enjoy the result. It was such a nice thing to make together, and they look so great at our front door. 

I got a lot of questions on Instagram on how I made mine with the leaves (Mads made the one with the tombstone and our house number), and it was actually super easy. I just drew the outline of some different leaves on the pumpkin and drew a few details in free hand. Then I cut out the edges and gently coaxed the surface of the pumpkin using a small stanley knife. And then we finished of with some sodium benzoate so that they hopefully will last a bit longer.
