How To Make an Avocado Pumpkin Carving!

🎃 Happy Halloween!!! 🎃

I made my boyfriend carve me an ‘I Avocado’ pumpkin, which turned out really well and I wanted to show you guys!!

He said he couldn’t carve an avocado, but I knew he could!

How to carve an avocado in a pumpkin

To carve the pumpkin you will first need to cut off the top and scape out all of the seeds and stringy bit.

To make the avocado pumpkin design draw a stencil of the design, then placed it over the pumpkin and cut the words and avocado in faintly into the pumpkin with a Stanley knife. Next, scraped off the light bit of the avocado leaving the stone in the middle (don’t to cut it out completely otherwise there won’t be anything to support the stone). Next cut out the bit to be the avocado skin and the stork. Lastly cut out the ‘I heart’ completely.

We used a Stanley knife, a small kitchen knife and a tea spoon with a pointy end to do the cutting and scraping.

Hopefully you can see better from the picture above that the ‘I ‘ is totally cut out of the pumpkin, where as for the avocado there is a thin layer of pumpkin flesh left.

And here’s the avocado pumpkin next to my little persimmon carving. I called him Percy!

    That is so creative. Wonderful.

    When I was young pumpkins were too expensive to buy for carving. Now I’m older and can afford them I keep eating them instead of carving them. Maybe next year.

      I wonder why they used to be so expensive. To be honest I only got a little one this year for £2- I don’t want to pay too much for it.
      Also, we carved it one day and then made tonnes of pumpkin puree the next. Usually the pumpkin sits on my side until it goes moldy!!

        I love using pumpkin purée in baked goods. Especially when you just want a bit of added texture and moistness rather than for taste.

    I included laughing emojis but your blog doesn’t seem to accept them 😉 The pumpkin looks amazing!

      Sorry for the delayed reply- my blog wasn’t letting me post comments the other day!
      Oh no about the emojis- I had to copy and paste the ones in the blog post.
      Thanks so much Chris 🙂
