Alright, I have been getting better and better at this each year. The problem is to get good pumpkins around here you have to buy them a month in advance and they will probably rot by Halloween. I would carve more if they weren't itsy bitsy or rotten.

I love carving and here is my creation this year:

Check out Tom Nardone, "Pumpkins worst nightmare", at www.extremepumpkins.com (http://www.extremepumpkins.com)

If you can access Yahoo, find him in "More features", "Todays Feature", "Extreme Halloween" and see a video on him and some of his pumpkins!

I have seen this site, and I have considered the flame throwing pumpkin. I am not sure I can afford to have the fire department show up though!

Nice job, is that wolf like the others faces where you put the paper photo on the front of the pumpkin and pin the design / then cut out the rest :confused:

What's the best tool to use to carve?

Any thoughts.....dremel didn't work.....we used the good ol' fashion paring knife.

The kids drew the faces with dry erase markers and I did the cutting.

They did all the digging out of seeds, etc.

They got a kick out of the rule that you always cut the mouth last so that the pumkin can't scream until you're done.

They sell pumpkin saws. My wife bought some a few years ago. They work pretty well.
