Carve A Miffy Pumpkin

Posted by Miffy on October 09, 2019

With Halloween just around the corner it's time to pick your pumpkin and get carving. Here's an adorable Miffy design for those who prefer the cute to the spooky!

Getting Started...

Before you start, make sure you have all the bits and pieces you need for carving your Miffy pumpkin:

getting started with your miffy pumpkin

  • Pumpkin
  • Big spoon
  • Sharp knife (for the adults to handle)
  • Marker pen or board marker
  • Candle or tealight

First of all, cut off the crown of the pumpkin an inch or two from the stem. If you do this at an angle with the knife pointing down, the lid of your pumpkin will stay put and not fall through!

Now, it's time for the messy bit! Use the spoon to scoop out all the gooey seeds and fibers until your pumpkin is smooth on the inside.

Your pumpkin is nearly ready for carving. Before you start, use your marker pen or board marker to draw your Miffy design onto your pumpkin. You can also print out an image, stick it to your pumpkin and use a pin to poke the design out without marking your pumpkin.

Finally, it's time to start carving! Being very careful, use a sharp knife to cut out your drawing. Sometimes it is easier to use a serrated knife, but always be sure to take your time and make sure an adult is helping you.

As you can see, Miffy's ears are touching the top of the pumpkin to make sure the design is sturdy.draw your miffy design

Once the outline is done you can draw on Miffy's face. This bit can be a little tricky so ask for help if you need it! Once you have given Miffy her eyes and mouth, place a candle in the pumpkin and replace the lid.
