pumpkin.2014:gilligan

Each year I carve a pumpkin. Not necessarily the standard jack-o-lantern, but we do roast the seeds and light it up for as long as the poor thing will last in the elements. I had a hard time choosing a design this year and had to go with the Text Poll Your a Friends method. In the end Gilligan won hands down. (And this was definitely a faster project than that 3 hour cruise…).

First one needs to poke some holes into the pumpkin around the pertinent areas in the pattern and slowly begin to remove the sections.

A little direction from the Skipper and Ginger and we’re ready to give it a go!

These are just a few of my favorites from over the years. Definitely a lot of fun. And my parents are so proud – think of all that money they spent on art school for me to carve pumpkins!! (though I did win a $20 gift card to a Thai restaurant in a carving contest though…..)
