From Funny, to Geek, To Scary… Pumpkin Carving Ideas

[2 Oct 2009 | By | 9 Comment(s) | 52,103 views ]

Halloween isn’t too far off, and it’s not too early to be thinking about that perfect pumpkin!

Wisdom of the Moon - PumpkinCarve Your Face

This one from Wisdom of the Moon is just fabulously done! Yup, that’s her face, and she carved it. She has a very detailed tutorial so you can put your own face on a pumpkin, too. And if you don’t follow her blog, check it out… she’s got some great stuff there. You can win your own carved stamp if you hurry! (Great, now I’m messing up my chances of winning!)

My favorite is this one <–  Pie Anyone?
