A couple of years ago I discovered carvable foam Pumpkins, something which is fairly popular in America, however, here in the UK they simply aren't available.
The idea of having a carving I could keep forever was something I couldn't stop thinking about, so I set about ordering one from America, after shipping, import taxes and the cost of the Pumpkin I was around £120 out of pocket, but I had a foam Pumpkin!
I carved the Pumpkin in a few days, I found the material a little tough, but I still enjoyed carving it and was happy with the result - but what now, it was Spring, and months till Halloween, spending £120 on each Pumpkin was simply something I couldn't afford.
When lockdown hit I found I had a lot of time on my hands, so I set about trying to make my own carvable foam Pumpkins, after several months I had something I was happy with.
For the most part, I am making these to carve myself, but I'm happy to sell a few to fellow UK carvers.
I have full Pumpkins available and half Pumpkins for people to practice on
Full uncarved Pumpkin: £40 + p&p
Half uncarved Pumpkin: £20 + p&p
Carved Foam Pumpkins start at £180
I currently only ship within the UK and some parts for Europe
Only low voltage LED lights can be used - Max 5 volts
Here's a selection of my recent foam Pumpkin carvings, all of which have been carved using a rotary tool
