Pumpkin Carving with a Power Drill

Maisy picked out two little pumpkins on our recent Kindergarten field trip. And since she brought them home, she has been begging to carve them. Have you ever carved a little pumpkin? They are tough! Those 'shells' are thick and the surface area is tiny. Just getting your hand into one is a trick! So we decided to forgo the 'pumpkin carving' knives (after two broke) and break out the drill.





To carve a pumpkin with a drill, begin like you would in a 'typical carving' situation. Use a knife to cut open the top, scrape the insides to remove the seeds and guts, then break out your drill! Depending on the size drill bit, you can make small or large cuts. Afton was big enough to do it herself.


Maisy needed a little more help.


I love the results. It was fast and no sore hands from cutting. You can see the 'eyelashes' on Maisy's pumpkin were done with a small drill bit. The large holes came from a larger drill tip.



Have you ever used a drill on a pumpkin? Here are some fun links about carving a pumpkin with a drill to inspire you.
