Back in 2011 I got the bright idea that we should each have our own “craft pumpkin” that we would carve and then mark with our name and the year.
I’m a sucker for sentimental holiday decorations.
They’re very simple to make. Just get a foam pumpkin from your local craft store and I recently purchased a hot knife and it may have been the best $17 I’ve spent all week. I normally let the kids draw all over their pumpkins and then carve the pumpkins myself (the hot knife is ages 14 and up)
P.S. We always buy our pumpkins the first week of October because they’re normally half price.
That’s it! Super easy and surprisingly sentimental. http://www.michaels.com/walnut-hollow-professional-hotknife/10389558.html
