Ernie and Bert Pumpkins

Happy October everyone!

It just wouldn’t seem right if I didn’t post about something to do with Halloween!

Three years ago, I saw some Ernie and Bert pumpkins in some magazine….probably a parenting magazine since it’s Ernie and Bert.

They have to be my two favorite characters on Sesame Street.

There was no Elmo when I was growing up!!

For this project, you need one tall pumpkin and one fat pumpkin, some black fur fabric for the hair, and a carving tool.

I used the fakies so I could have them year after year.

I just eyed how they looked in the magazine to create mine….please do the same from the pic above….I have no idea how to explain it!

Just notice how the eyes, noses, and hair are different for each character and, of course, Bert has to have some big bushy eyebrows!

My kids (and the neighborhood kids) get excited when these come out year after year!

    These are super cute. I love Sesame Street. I have to DVR it cuz it’s the one show that doesn’t drive me completely crazy when my little boy watches it over and over and over… =]

    Those are so cute! I keep telling myself I’m gonna carve a pumpkin “this” year, but I always end up cooking it instead! LOL This year I have a light up fake pumpkin that I saved from the trash. It already has a face on it, but I still have something in store for it.

    Ah, love it! I’m doing trunk or treating for special needs kids and we are decorating in a sesame street theme. This will be a perfect addition!!

    Those are so great! And I knew what they were immediately, even from the tiny picture on the link up and without reading the description, so they totally look like Ernie and Bert!

    I feel so bad that my youngest doesn’t know who Ernie and Bert are because of The Disney Channel!

    Way to be creative! And so fun! Thanks for linking up for Friday Favorites last week!

  15. How funny. Even if you had not told us who the pumpkins were representing, I could tell that they were Bert and Ernie. I’m impressed that you could get the facial features so close that I could recognize them.

    Thanks for linking to my party. I look forward to seeing what you link up each week.
