How I did it: It took the longest time finding the perfect pumpkin, hence 10 days. My son had the idea of a spider, so I freehand drew the spider on the pumpkin with a pencil, then used a garnishing tool and cut the top off to hollow out the pumpkin guts and seeds. After scraping it all out, I used a small knife to carve the details. Read how I did it… 4 years ago
I made the pumpkin muffin recipe that was posted. They are really good. I put raisins! I am going to make them again with cream cheese frosting! Thanks 4 years ago

I spent some time yesterday carving my pumpkin much to Chunk’s disgust. Apparently at 6 months pumpkin carving is boring! 4 years ago

I found a handful of free pumpkin carving templates on about.com – I am sure there are more to be found if I looked a little harder. 4 years ago
I’m shopping for pumpkins today. I have one small one already. I think I need to find some with interesting shapes. Oh, no – It just started snowing here! 4 years ago
I’m now a member of the team. Well, we’ve got one small pumpkin now! I dunno when I’ll get around to carving any, soon I hope! 4 years ago
I plan to take all the seeds from the Pumpkin, pick out the bits of flesh, and toss them into a colander to wash. Afterwards I’ll let them dry on a baking sheet and save them for the colder months of the winter to include in the seed mixes for the birds. 4 years ago
I have taken to STARING at pumpkins. I actually did a pumpkin carving meditation. I asked my inner self to guide me to an idea. (Yeah I was bored, My Mom had minor surgery & I was sitting waiting & waiting – hospitals are boring).
Anyway, I have my idea…now implementation… 4 years ago
and after corn season, guess what? We sell a LOT of pumpkins! I normally only do “average” stuff, but I’ll see a lot of pumpkins!
Maybe I should be a judge rather than a participant! Oh well.

Remember to sharpen your knives beforehand if you can.
It may seem counterintuitive; but, dull knives are more likely to cause cuts, and the ones they cause are usually worse.
Dull knives require more pressure to make the same cuts, so you’re more likely to lose control, or have it slip and then have it moving w/ greater force behind it. Whereas sharpened knives respond to a lighter touch, and if you do cut yourself at least it’d be a clean cut. 4 years ago
