Pumpkin Vase

Having limited time around Halloween I was unable to carve a pumpkin this year. I usually take my pumpkin carving very seriously and it can be quite involved. Here are my carvings from the past 2 years:

 This year, My room mate Alison and I opted for a different type of pumpkin craft. We turned a pumpkin into a vase! All we had to do was remove the top, scrape out the inside, and paint the outside. The process was much faster than carving and turned out really well. My boyfriend Joe bought me some beautiful flowers to fill our vase. The pumpkin vase makes a nice centerpiece for fall.
