Fresh from the produce aisle: try these easy no-carve/low-carve ideas!
Why not go a little Frankenstein with these all natural add-ons? So what you're gonna do for this technique is you're gonna shop the aisles of your grocery store for food that can look like features. Like here, I've got some tale hair and some radish eyes, and even cauliflower can make cool hair, and you can either start with a pumpkin that you haven't carved at all, or you can start with a very simple face like I'm gonna do here. So what you need is you need some toothpicks, and you need some larger skewers to hold some of your larger vegies, and let's see. I'm gonna use some Brussels sprouts maybe for eyeballs. Yeah. I'll try this guy. Maybe that one. And you just kind of skewer it right to the bottom like this, and just skewer it through, and then you're just gonna stick it in, and skewer it into your pumpkin. Skewer that through there, and then push it right into my pumpkin like that. And then for a nose, I'm gonna use some yellow peppers like this. Let's see. I'll try out a few. I think I like this one. So for this, I'm actually gonna use a skewer because the pepper is a little bit longer. So I'm just gonna cut it down maybe quite right about there. And you're just gonna stick it right into the pepper like this. Right through. Let's take this one first. And then I'm gonna skewer it on like that. Cool. And now, for our hair, I'm gonna use some asparagus to give him some really spiky hair. And so for this, I'm gonna use again my little toothpicks and just kind of stick them in, and then you take your asparagus. I'm gonna do some short spiky hair here, and just put it right into the base of this area like that. If you have mallet, sometimes it's good if the pumpkin's a little firm. Can be hard to get the toothpick right in there. So you kind of get the idea. You can add a lot of hair or just a little bit of hair. Either way, I think that was really really cool. And so now, we need some teeth for our guy, and for that, I'm actually gonna use some Indian corn, and with a little wood carving tool, you can get this at any craft store really inexpensively. I'm just gonna kind of pick off some kernels. You just stick these right into your pumpkin like that. So as you can see, you can go completely no carve or maybe carve a simple face and kind of dress it up with your vegetables. Either way, it's a great way to face Halloween.
