You know it’s fall when you start to see pumpkins for sale. One of my favorite memories from childhood was heading to the pumpkin farm to pick out the perfect pumpkin. I wanted to pay homage to that memory with my latest maze.
Nowadays one of our favorite family activities is to cut our pumpkins for Halloween. My kids have the same love for intricate designs as I do. Typically I try to pick the most difficult design from the Pumpkin Masters book. It should come as no surprise that I like the most tedious and detailed design I can do and my kids are following in my footsteps.
This maze is essentially a combination of a landscape maze and a pattern maze. My ski gondola maze is a good example of a landscape maze. If you want to see examples of pattern mazes check out my snowflake or fishing lures mazes.
Below are some of the sketches and color tests I created while planning this maze. I went though several layouts and variations in the design of this maze before I settled on the final layout.
If you don’t want to print the mazes at home please consider using the VistaPrint link below. VistaPrint is the vendor I use to print my mazes on card-stock to hand out to friends and family. I have found that they are the highest quality and the most affordable of the print vendors. Also, I like that they allow for small batch printing which keeps the price affordable. I print them on heavy cardstock postcards and they turn out fantastic.
