Say Cheese – Pumpkin Carving Pattern

I’m pretty sure that if skeletons did have cell phones, they’d be the superstars of social media.

At Halloween, scary skulls adorn everything. Why? Because we think they look so cool! And this skull completely agrees with us!I was never scared of skeletons.

I always imagined them with a cool pair of shades and a cheesy grin (at least that’s how I always pictured the skeleton hanging in my science class, Mr. Bones).

I thought that since they were so loose and jiggly, that they’d make the best dancers! After all, who was going to tell them that they didn’t have any rhythm?

I’m pretty sure that if skeletons did have cell phones, they’d be the superstars of social media. Those bony little fingers are perfect for texting!

And those clackety chiclet teeth are perfect for selfies! Okay, so they may not be able to pucker up to a duck face, but those crisp little chompers are a dentist’s dream (even if they may be missing a few!).

Skulls are full of creepy goodness! We may as well embrace them because it’s one thing we all have in common, and they tend to have a way to “get under our skin!” Ha!

Pro Tips: Here’s a few ideas to make your skull sweet!

  • Teeth give this guy a perfect grin. But he doesn’t really need them all! If you want to make it like your skull lost the match, don’t trace out and carve all the teeth. Leave out one or two to create a few blank spaces…it will also up the creep factor!
  • The top of each eye socket is raised and rounded, softening the look. If you want a scary skull, carve a downward line from each of the outer top corners. Put with the smile, he’ll look like an evil genius!
  • Careful not to overcut the corner of the pumpkin pieces left attached to the eye sockets. Without them, the eye will fall out altogether! And if these break while carving? Push in each side a piece of broken toothpick or wire to put the broken pieces back together!
