Despite my cheese carving endeavors, I have never been much of a pumpkin carver. We do the basic monster faces every year, and even that is under some protest on my part. Having spent countless hours playing with the kids and their Darth Tater, I am however, really good at sticking plastic arms and legs into fake produce.
So we were really excited when Jedi Master Heidi brought these Star Wars pumpkins for the party a few years ago. They make great center-pieces and decorations. And if like me, you really don’t like the feel of cold pumpkin innards (which feel a lot like cold taun-taun guts, if you ask me), they can also be used for Halloween.
- Paint your pumpkin either beige or black.
- Insert the plastic bits.
- Admire your handy work!
