Scary and Silly Faces Carved on Pumpkins

Carving recognizable faces onto pumpkins is fun. For Halloween, it’s even more fun to carve some scary or silly faces. Here are a couple of examples of silly and scary faces carved on pumpkins. The best way for you to learn to carve pumpkin faces is with our Portrait Carving Course.

I carved the following images starting with a scary photo of me. I carved the teeth to look more crooked and jagged to make the pumpkin carving look even more creepy.

The key is to start with a fun photo. In my video Portrait Carving Course, I teach how to choose or create photos that will make good carving patterns. I show how to turn the photo into and pattern and how to best transfer it to your pumpkin. Then I show how to carve to get 2 toned, 3 toned and multi-toned effects. You’ll be surprised at how recognizable your faces carved on pumpkins can be.

      Thanks Nikki. My granddaughter made faces for the photos. I carved them. She is still a bit young to teach this technique.
