Monday’s Make-it … { Mummy Pumpkin + Cyclops }


Hubby and I (Mr. & Mrs. Frankenstein) usually aim to make creative pumpkins  not ’4 days before Halloween (eeeek, so last minute!)’. But we have been very busy, so to gear our excitement up for our decorating fest I started by making the FASTEST decorative pumpkin brought to life ” muahahaha ….. a Mummy Pumpkin in less than 10 minutes!

Surgeon tools needed: 1) pumpkin, 2) bandages, 3) eyeballs, 4) glue. This is my FAVE bandage wrap since it is self-adhesive (made surgery soooo much easier!). Time for wrap paaarrteee . . .


Glued the eyeballs . . .


I chose 2 different size “googelly eyes” . . .

I left a bandage hanging for dRaMa … but this pumpkin is toooo cute to be scary!!!

It’s def my FAVE … look at those ADORABLE eyes!!!

Whatchathink of it?

We had another small pumpkin so we decided to ‘bring to life’ a girlfriend for Mummy pumpkin …. we created a Cyclops Pumpkin Vampire. This time hubby wanted to join the fun (and keep me from hurting myself with the knife). After searching 3 stores we he finally found vampire teeth (or as I like calling them ‘dentures’ hehehe).

Steps, (1) carve the mouth:

If I left it to my hub, he would turn it into a throwing up pumpkin (grooosss):

I digress, back to the steps . . .  (2) add the vampire teeth: 


Then (3) glue the EYEBALL (my idea to make it into a cyclops!):

Then  (4) add eyelashes (hubby’s idea! … sacrificing my fake eyelashes for the sake of creating a GIRLFRIEND for Mummy Pumpkin):


Of course adding the (5) bloooood was hubby’s idea …I like thinking of it as fruit punch instead of blood (keeping it Rated G people!!!) … just like I prefer watching horror flicks from the 1950s instead of today’s gore.


Here’s the cutie-pie next to our huge pumpkin:

Ooooh I did carve a LARGE pumpkins yesterday - with tongue sticking out! …. it came out soooooo cool (one of my BEST if I do say so myself). Stay tuned, I will be posting it later on today.

Don’t they make a cute couple? Which is your fave? Mine is Mummy!

Last week I was commissioned to help decorate a restaurant castle (yep, CASTLE! wohooooo) in Rye, NY for their Halloween Party last minute. I was sooo excited to help! I was going to have the support of the staff for decorating (plus I recruited my hubby since he loooves this stuff), then their Halloween Party was canceled Booohooooo!  And with hurricane Sandy along our path it may had been the best thing, but still disappointing …. I visualize lots of webs and hanging large spiders and ghoulishly decorating their large armor knights. Oooh well, maybe next time! Stay tuned for the featured carved pumpkin this afternoon.
