Who loves pumpkins? (we raise our hands) Who loves October? (we do too!) Today, we have two incredible paper pumpkins by our incredible designers Danielle Copley and Joanne Bain. You will be blown away by their talent!
"Rare Oddities is a fussy cutters dream Halloween collection! As soon as I saw some craft pumpkins in my local big box craft store, I knew how I wanted to combine the two to make THE perfect Halloween décor piece for my home! I carved out a large ‘window’ to reveal the hollow inside, used my Groove tool to sand the rough edges down, painted the inside black and went to town adding all sorts of fussy cut elements to create a spooky 3D scene inside my pumpkin! Since Halloween is best suited to celebrate in the dark of night, I added some lights to highlight areas inside the pumpkin. I had so much fun making this project and the best part of my pumpkin carving adventure is that this pumpkin can be enjoyed for many Halloweens to come!
Tip #1: Want something not so dark and spooky- try a festive orange or white craft pumpkin.
Tip #2: Love the look but overwhelmed with the space to fill? Start by choosing larger fussy cut elements to create the main scene and fill in the rest with finer fussy cuts; or, fill in using ready-made embellishments to save time." ~Danielle

"Getting into the spirit of Halloween I decided to create a paper pumpkin using the amazing Rare Oddities collection. I seriously love this collection and the papers have so many little details that call to be fussy cut and added to my project. My favourite image would have be the super cute skeleton." ~Joanne
