Muppet fever made its way into the pumpkin patch. Cute huh?
Must give credit where it is due — this idea came from my wonderful friend Ann, who sent me a photo of a Muppet pumpkin from years ago (see the original featured above with her beautiful children, mom and friend, decked out for some serious Halloween festiveness!). I love this idea so much. If I get my act together and my carving knives unpacked, maybe I can make a whole Muppet gang next year? If anyone deserved to be made out of gourds, it would be Gonzo.
This particular pumpkin had super thick walls, so I had to keep the cuts simple. And since a smile was about all he could manage, I felt compelled to give him a couple of teeth. I don’t know if Muppets usually have teeth, but a little hillbilly flair never hurt anyone.
*Someone* decided to get in the fun too so I made her a witch hat, but it came out looking more like a sequined pilgrim hat. Or a pimp hat. I’m not really sure, but Lola will be looking extra fierce for the Trick-or-Treaters tonight.
