Christmas Carvings – Melon and Pumpkin Santas

Here are a few really fun Christmas carving s including photos of carved melon and pumpkin Santas. Maybe they will give you ideas and inspiration for next year.

Pumpkin Santa Christmas Carving

This Santa Claus carved from pumpkin was carved by one of my customer/students Simon Paul Muscat. He sent these photos to me with a note saying,

“Hi, Just thought I’d do something different and maybe you would like to see it. First I did the beard from the same pumpkin but then I tried with cauliflower.

Merry Christmas

Isn’t this carved Santa Claus fun? And so well done. I liked the Santa carved just from pumpkin, but the addition of the cauliflower beard makes it even better!

What a great idea Simon.

For those of you who might want to learn how to carve 3 dimensional pumpkins that look like faces, you will love the DVD lessons, Ray Villafane’s 3-D Pumpkin Carving Tutorials that are available in my Shop.

Another Fun Christmas carving is the Santa carved from watermelon by Shawn Feeney. Another great job isn’t it?

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!”

Truly a work of art, Shawn. Your St. Nickomelon looks so kind and charming.
