Hey all and everyone of all ages, this is just a quick reminder for the Halloween Hukd carving competition. Last year was another fun time, think this has been running for 3-4 years now, it's great for the kids and there is prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

So please all enter and lets show this years best with some
excellent carvings, all carvings must have your Hukd name or kids name and the date.

I shall be posting up the main thread soon, so please start thinking and get your kids envolved for another succesful pumpkin competition.

Stay tuned

Hottoshop and hannah must enter this year, as per that thread link lol :)

Can we maybe have at least one moderator in this years comp? None of the mods have ever entered I don't think
you have plenty of time this year, some of you must have children lol
I would love to see Paul design a special HUKD pumpkin carving, that would be so cool :)

Hey ! I offered you Smarties !! I think you missed the "Royal Mail was on strike excuse BTW)

Saxo, like F/H if you need some small prizes (CD's etc) for this years comp I'm more than happy to donate as well.

Just shout :viking:

This is gonna sound so blonde how do you carve a decent pumpkin hubby usually does it but is away and I gotta have a go for the kids a porcelain one is kinda cheating!

Rep for tips please x


They are easy to do Tinkerbell, just scrap out the middle and make a stencil of the pic you want and just transpose it onto the pumpkin, I get the kids to use a needle (well the eldest) and then cut round your markings. It looks pretty rubbish til you put the candle in so don't be dishearted til you see the end result :thumbsup:

Oh ok will buy a few just in case I make a real mess under the guise of one each and just have a good go at it! I am sure they will think it's great no matter what!

Thanks appreciate it:thumbsup:


We only bought one and it came out better than I thought, inspired by the comp on here, even though the kids told me I did it wrong the whole time lol

Oh that came out really well and first try too! Ahh I should be able to have a good go!


Ahh you will, I bet it will be fab. If I can do it anyone can, I can't even make a cup of coffee without spilling sugar everywhere so you don't need that steady a hand and the kids snapped one of the teeth off that one pushing each other for their turn lol

At the end of the days its good, messy fun which the kids love :thumbsup:
[helper]#36
You will all be fine, rememeber it doesn't have to look perfect
it's all about having fun with the kids and taking part in the comp.

We get just a handfull of entries, this is why I'm starting this earlier this year.
Just so people have more notice and we get loads of carvings
[helper]#37
Haha

yeh I'm thinking of opening the comp roughly on the 23rd :)

can't believe it's a year gone already again....

time does fly

*** Baz has greg and Den been contacted yet mate ? ***
[helper]#38
