DIY: A Cute Bat Pumpkin

Hello everybody, I have another DIY for you all. It's a cute bat pumpkin. I used a small pumpkin for this but you can use a bigger pumpkin if you want. It's very simple and easy but it's a little bit messy.

This is my first pumpkin carving. So my carving isn't the best. The bat didn't come out exactly how I wanted it to be. The bat has a longer wing on one side than the other. So now the bat looks like it's flying. I still like it and it's still cute.

You will need...

A small or large pumpkin.
What you would normally use for Pumpkin tools.
A picture of a bat.
A real or a fake candle.

Step One

Take your pumpkin and start to carve the stem off of it. Then take the seeds out.


On the stem of the pumpkin it looks like there is a face.

Step Two

Find a bat you like on the internet and print it out.

Step Three

You can place the bat on the pumpkin by holding on to it or by placing pins on it and make indents on the pumpkin. You don't have to all the way through until you take the bat off. You can carve out two bats if you want one on the back and the front. I only carved out one bat.

Take the bat off and start to carve the bat out of the pumpkin.

Step Four

Place the candle inside the pumpkin. You can use a fake or a real candle. I used a fake candle.

 Here are some pictures of what it looks like in the dark.

 Here are some pictures of Minnie posing with the pumpkin.

Here's a short video of what it looks like in the dark and in the daylight. Rocky and Minnie are also in it and Rocky almost eats the pumpkin!

I hoped you enjoyed this DIY! What do you think of this bat pumpkin?
