I ran into some unexpected delays with production, but things are back in track, and I'm aiming for late September to have them in stock again. Stay tuned!

Re: Cross Stitch, anyone?

That's great! You might not look like a typical cross stitcher, but I can see how it's a fun hobby. Similar to pumpkin carving, you can zone out while you work on it. It's relaxing, passes the time, and when you're done you have a piece of art you can be proud of. I've never tried it myself, but som...

Re: Circus theme Halloween for 2022

I love a good theme for a Halloween party and costumes. And the creepy circus is a fun idea that you haven't done yet. As usual, you can reuse a lot of general decorations, the giant clown mouth, balloons and tents will instantly set the right scene. For some reason, the image of vintage Halloween c...

Now I must make a Frankstein monster side profile, so they can be placed side by side, be facing each other.

What heat setting do you use? With my Walnut Hollow Creative Versa Tool, I usually turn the heat all the way up to max. I just assume hotter means easier cutting right? And indeed, it melts the foam and cuts like butter. But I would just advise that you keep the blade moving. At high heat, it's mor...

The pumpkin patterns files are intended to print on a standard letter sized sheet of paper, 8.5 x 11 inches. The actual design (that you'll cut out of the pumpkin) varies, depending on the character/image. But generally, they're about 8 - 8.5 inches in their longest direction. This size seems to wor...

Portercat, that makes too much sense. :grin: Grinding the back edge so you don’t have to sharpen a new cutting edge. Now I feel dumb for not thinking of that myself!

We talked about this on Facebook, but for the sake of public education... The tool I use to cut most foam pumpkins is the Walnut Hollow Creative Versa Tool (available in craft stores and on Amazon). It's technically a wood burning tool, but it has interchangeable tips. I'm using the tip that's like ...

Re: DIY Scarecrow: Patch Master

One of the reasons I wanted to try to make a real scarecrow was because I wanted to place it in my back yard, in my pumpkin garden. But sadly, we had a very hot summer with almost no rain. My pumpkin patch got fried in the sun, and the drought resulted in no pumpkins. So I didn't bother making a sca...

Happy National Frankenstein Day, celebrating the birthday of author Mary Shelley, born August 30, 1797. Her novel "Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus" was published in 1818, and led to iconic film adaptations like "Frankenstein" in 1931 and "Bride of Frankenstein" in 1935. Tonight would be a go...
