Not Your Ordinary Pumpkin...

Happy Halloween!

Now there is nothing like going to the pumpkin patch & picking out the best looking orange pumpkin you can find, but it seems like everyone likes to carve just a plain orange pumpkin & stick a candle in it. Here are a few festive & unusual pumpkins for a yummy Halloween or Thanksgiving party!

Stylist Liz Demos Took a Paintbrush Instead of the Usual Craving Tools
to These Great Silver Moon Pumpkins!

Most of the above designs were created with linoleum-cutting tools ,
which can be used to carve a motif on the surface of the pumpkin,
rather than cutting all the way through.
*This gives off a warm glow when you put a candle
is inside the bottom of your cleaned out pumpkin!
