Halloween decorations and pumpkins!!

Happy belated Halloween, everyone!

We had a party on Friday for some of Jeff's coworkers and it was so much fun! I decided to make a little graveyard based off of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyworld. I also carved a haunted mansion themed pumpkin for the party and made a little Elmo pumpkin on Tuesday for the trick or treaters.

Anyway, on to the pictures!

Elmo pumpkin:
I was going to smooth out the shaded parts, but I kind of like it like this. It looks sort of furry, don't you think?

Aaaand my haunted mansion pumpkin:

And here's a little closer, with some slightly better detail. It looks better in person, but I didn't have time to get the lighting right for a picture.

The tombstones (which I think I'll post a little tutorial of later) are made entirely of foam insulation sheets (which are carved and then painted with latex paint):

A few more shots of the tombstones are here.

Overall, I'm quite proud of my Halloween craftiness! :D


  1. You're putting Martha Stewart to shame! Nolan would have LOVED the Elmo pumpkin!!!!

  2. Those are SO awesome. You are very creative. I would never have the patience for any of that :) Very nice!

  3. I love it!! Like Sam said, you are very creative. It sounds like you had a great Halloween!!!
