Nautical Nanaimo Inspired Pumpkins

I want to get into the halloween spirit but am tired of the same old ideas I come up with for my pumpkin year after year. I thought perhaps you might feel the same. I have found a few pumpkin ideas that match the look and feel of all things Nautical and Pirate themed for us Nanaimo-ites who are proud of where we live! For a few links to some other blogs, magazine posts and Pinterest pages please read on.

These instructions include some tools such as a drill, rotary tool and utility knife. To check it click HERE to the Seaside inspired Blog I found.

For amateur carvers, such as myself, I found these cool white pumpkin shapes which don’t require quite as many tools but still nautical inspired! Click HERE to check out Canadian Living’s post.
