...to carve a pumpkin like this:
These are just some of the pumpkins carved by Noel Dickover and his family over the last 9 years. You can find all of his work at fantasypumpkins.com. He even has tutorials and templates for a few designs - all free. Great stuff from a guy who really gets into the Hallowe'en season. I wonder what his house looks like at Christmas.
You can also find a few ideas at extremepumpkins.com, but after looking at Noel's work, this site isn't nearly as 'extreme'.
Send me some pics of your pumpkins and we'll post them on Monday.
