So there’s a collection of some of the most awesome Harry Potter pumpkins the web has to offer. Now for what you’ve all been waiting for. My retarded effort:
See he’s a special owl (no, not in a good way). If you’re thinking of making one of these things you probably want to print off a pattern, place it on your pumpkin and punch through holes along the lines of your pattern to form the design. (You’re right that that is not in anyway what I did). Also be aware that scooping out the middle of your pumpkin is definitely a job you should assign to someone else like a younger sibling or easily controlled boyfriend. It’s really boring and takes far longer than seems possible.
