Halloween is coming up! We thought we'd share a little tutorial with you for a faux bois (woodgrain) pumpkin. It's super easy to do, and since you don't have to carve the pumpkin, it'll last longer than a traditional carved one.
- a pumpkin
- stamp carving tools (you can find these in the printmaking section of art supply stores or online)
Step 1: Carve a small oval into your pumpkin
Step 2: Carve a larger oval around your initial cut
Step 3: continue tracing around oval, adding horizontal lines that following the curves of your oval
Repeat steps 1-3 until finished.
