Carving a pumpkin shouldn’t be this hard. We’re definitely creatively inspired by these Pinterest pumpkins, but if we’re being honest, we’re also kind of intimidated. For those of us who don’t know our way around a glue gun or have never made a mood board, carving an elaborate pumpkin might feel a bit unrealistic.
Considering that we really don’t want anyone to miss a chance to
get into the spirit of Halloween outdo their neighbor’s Halloween decorations, we put together a list of pumpkins possible even for the most novice DIY’ers
Go get em, ghouls. You got this.
