Pumpkin Patch

Belated post, but this year I finally got to carve a pumpkin myself! Rob and I bought and carved them together. He'd never carved one before!

The pumpkins! I chose the greenest one I could see in the store.

Carved! I did Gunter from Adventure Time and Rob did Isaac from The Binding Of Isaac. I ended up using a flat-headed screwdriver to shave the pumpkin after transferring my design from paper to the pumpkin by punching holes into it with a drawing pin.

Lit up!

My poor Gunter ended up going mouldy really quickly, but I'm still really pleased with how it turned out. I'm already planning next year's! And I want to eat some pumpkin next year too (mum used it in a dish which also contained mushrooms this year, so I didn't get to eat any!).

What did you carve into your pumpkin this year?
