What kind of a Halloween month would it be here on Pintester if I didn’t do a jack-o-lantern, hm? In years past, I’ve managed to create fairly un-stupid jack-o-lanterns, so this year, I opted for something a little challenging. This pin on Pinterest is a fun kitty one:
But I went for one that came in the Williams Sonoma pumpkin carving set my mother-in-law bought for our pumpkin carving party. (She always goes all out.) Here’s sort of how that one was supposed to look:
It’s a cat in a crescent moon with a spider above it.
We began with the ritual de-gutting, which I really love because there is no way to mess up this step.
Once the pumpkin has been de-gutted, though, all bets are off. Mine imploded immediately and had to be doctored up with toothpicks.
And that worked for a while…
But a few days later, it’s collapsed, moldy, and unrecognizable. Oh well. At least the de-gutting was fun.
