This article will show you a variety of fun December Holiday Carving Ideas done by a variety of creative people.
Carved Candles Idea for Christmas or Hanukkah
This first candle carving idea created by one of my customers, Yiota Thoma could be adapted for either Christmas or Hanukkah. Turn a melon on it’s side, carve 9 candles and you have a pretty menorah carving. Or you could carve 3 watermelons. Carve a larger candle on a taller melon and place it between 2 shorter melons each with 4 candles and you would have a 3 melon menorah arrangement with 9 candles.
Several Animation Type December Holiday Carving Ideas
Pro pumpkin carver Jim Morgan made this snowman from giant pumpkin to grace a Christmas tree lot. It’s a great idea if you happen to have some leftover pumpkins.
Jim Morgan also did this accurate carving of Dr. Seuss’ Grinch that stole Christmas. Jim did a great job on this, didn’t he?
You can learn to carve 3 dimensional faces on pumpkins in Ray Villafanes 3D Pumpkin Carving Tutorials that we have available in our online shop. I know that Jim learned to carve 3D faces into pumpkins from Ray Villafane.
Fruity Christmas Tree
Below you’ll see a fruit Christmas tree similar to the ideas I showed in a precious post about how to make fruit and vegetable Christmas trees.
In response, one of my customer/students. Sharleen Cobourne from the UK sent in her photo below. She wrote:
Hi Nita, Hope you are well, here’s my fruit tree. I had to make 5 for a Christmas party they loved them! -Sharleen
I like how Sharleen added lights and made a star from pineapple with a grape suspended in the middle. It’s fun.
Winter Wonderland December Holiday Carving Ideas
The carvings in this next set of photos show a fun and eyecatching carving display of Santa and his reindeer all carved from a variety of fruits and vegetables. In case you are wondering, the reindeer are make from taro.
The carvers that created this festive winter wonderland display were James Parker, Eric Baisas, Ernie Alvarez, Steve Baity, and Richard Alford.
The snowman below is really cute. If you are a newbie carver and want to give it a try, this would be fairly easy to recreate for your home.
