Last post, I showed everyone my little fall felt pumpkin. Today, I will show you that same pumpkin with a “scary face”! Get ready! Hide the children! This is one monstrous jack-o-lantern!
Alright, alright, he is actually not very scary at all. Doing this felted project brought back some cherished childhood memories. Sitting at the table, assigned the task of drawing a scary jack-o-lantern face knowing that the scariest will win. I was one of four kids and my chances were pretty low that my spooky drawing would win; throw in my dad’s drawings and I was sure to lose! My dad could create the scariest jack-o-lantern faces. And while he might would “use” my eyes, or nose as inspiration on the finished jack-o-lantern; everyone knew that it was my dad’s drawing on that pumpkin! Perhaps I should have consulted him before felting my version of a “scary” jack-o-lantern, because after all these years I still can’t compare.
I made his eyes, nose, and mouth yellow to resemble that inner glow that all jack-o-lanterns seem to contain! And he actually looks rather friendly, like a young child who has lost a few teeth! Not intimidating at all. But I love cutesy, so he will do just fine for me! I hope you all were inspired to create “spooky” or “cutesy” Halloween decorations of your very own.
