You might remember the pumpkins from 2007 and 2008, well here are the 2009 edition.
Here's my pumpkin, not political or too exciting but I wanted to try one that had a little more 3D effect.
The moon is made by removing the pumpkin skin but leaving pumpkin behind instead of just carving it out. I think I'll know how to do this better next time by making the layer thinner so light shines through but next year I'd like to try with different depths of pumpkin shell to see if there are some cool effects there.
And the winner for 2009 is Matt's pumpkin - especially since he didn't have a stencil. This is his jeep in pumpkin form!
