What's better than smashing pumpkins on Halloween? That's right, carving them! Get out your knives and Dremels and get ready to enter a pumpkin carving contest.
This Old House is calling all carvers to showcase their best pumpkins to win prizes. What can you win? Well, for starters, the top 10 pumpkins will be featured on their website.
Grand Prize: $200 gift card to Home Depot
Second Place: Zombie Pumpkins Pro Pumpkin Carving Tool Set and a "Monster Harvest" membership for Zombiepumpkins.com (with unlimited access to carving patterns)
Third Place: Me On A Pumpkin v2.0 Stencil Software
From now until October 21 (which is today, so I guess you'd better get carving), you can upload photos of your pumpkin to their website. From October 22 to October 29 you can then vote for your favorite pumpkins (choosing only yours, of course!).
