I decided to have a little fun tonight while carving pumpkins with the kiddos. I've seen people do the vampire teeth in the pumpkin and I've seen the fancy sculpting of the pumpkin. I thought I'd combine the two.

Step 1: Materials

smaller pumpkin
vampire teeth
safety glasses

Step 2: Design Pumpkin

I made sure the mouth was the right size for the teeth and then did a basic drawing.

Step 3: Bust Out the Dremmel & Start Carving

I just started having fun with the dremmel. This is where it was really important to have the safety glasses. I built up a pretty good layer of pumpkin dust on my face. I jade to keep wiping off my glasses.

Step 4: Light the Pumpkin

Put a candle in and see how it glows.

    Very nicely done! I carved a pumpkin with my dremel last year, and I looked just like you! Sticky bits of orange all over me.

    What kind of bits have you been using? Anything proved especially useful (or not?)

    How did your dremmel tool look after this? Was it as covered as your face? I'd like to give it a try, but my dremmel tool is pretty new and I'd hate to gunk it up too bad!

    No. There was some dust on it, and easily brushed off. I wouldn't be too worried about it.

    Thanks. It was a lot of fun. I just used a round ripper. I used an old one too since I didn't want to spoil my newer, sharper ones.
