Being British and of a generation that didn’t celebrate Halloween (until the retail industry took it up as a way of making some quick cash), this time of years has always been more about Bonfire Night (Guy Forkes Night) than Halloween to me. However, now that I have two boys that are very much wrapped up in modern culture, I have more or less been dragged into the Halloween “festivities”.
I hasten to add that they wont be Trick or Treating, as we don’t believe in blackmailing the neighbours for sweets.
I have carved a pumpkin for the last couple of years, and rather than stick to the simple ZigZag style scary face, I thought it was about time I tried my hand at something a little more adventurous!
I did a quick hunt around the internet for some simple ideas and came up with this one.
Still fairly simple, but certainly more effective than my previous attempts! To give it it’s full effect here is a photo with all the lights off!
