Is it strange to have a fantasy where I impress the neighborhood with a display of these intricate, lace-carved pumpkins seen in Martha Stewart Living?
In real life, this project is honestly a bit more involved than anything I care to tackle. Instead I have compiled a few alternative projects that satisfy the creative side, while remaining considerably less complicated to execute.
Jack O' Lanterns with drilled holes from Good Housekeeping do not require special attachments or carving tools.
Glittered pumpkins from Martha Stewart look elegant paired with silver stands.
Pumpkins with nail head street numbers (from cottage living) satisfy the neutral palette.
Stacked gourds act as a pedestal for traditionally carved Jack O' Lanterns from Martha Stewart.
