Secret Pumpkin Messages – No Carving Needed!

Oct 30, 2008 by

With excitement in the air, as well as candy by the door, Halloween is almost here!  If you don’t have time to carve a pumpkin, why not make a tackful one instead?  With a few tacks painted black, you can make your pumpkin spooky – without having to go under the knife.  Better yet, if you do decide to carve, you can take the tacks out and have the perfect outline for an elaborate creation (which is what I will do to beat my husband at the annual “carve off” we host)!

Tacks allow you to be creative with your pumpkin displays, which will last much longer than the carved variety.  For batty lovers, feel free to email me for the template file for the friendly pumpkin bat!

Vases are fantastic vessels for sending scary messages: Boo, Eek, or RIP !
