and here's my finished pumpkin. i'm not very good at making things scary. so i opted for the much easier to obtain "weird-looking" pumpkin. i think he looks appropriately grumpy for someone who just got his guts ripped out with an ice cream scoop.
i also decorated a couple of candle holders. i saw the idea here and decided it would be fun and/or festive. i might as well do this kind of thing while i can, eh? fire and glass will need to be kept well out of reach next year.
