Mom uses the "carvable" foam pumpkins and Pumpkin Masters patterns. After she finishes carving the pumpkin, she traces around a quarter coin on the bottom back of the pumpkin and cuts a hole for the light.
The trick or treaters look forward to the display each year, and people come from all over to see them. Again today, our local TV station featured them :-)
You only carve once and several of her pumpkins are over seven years old. I think it's safe to say that my creative mama loves Halloween. Thanks for stopping by! Happy Halloween to you and yours.
If you have a favorite, I'd love to know.
