Zombie-ish pumpkins.





This years build didn't turn out as good as the previous years. Here and here. And, it turns out there is a reason people don't use candy corn for teeth.

Candy corn is candy. And pumpkins are moist. Candy melts in moist. Which is a bummer. I thought I was absolutely brilliant coming up with that idea. Turns out - I'm just so-so.

I love the one with the skin issues. Do you think for next year, if you put a wire in the candy corn, then stick the other end of the wire bit into the pumpkin, reduce the area that touches. You might get less melting.

I get worst mom of the year award for the second year in a row. I did not get any pumpkins. And they were ever GIVING THEM AWAY this year.

Oh! Wire is a really good idea. I tried toothpicks - but candy corn is too fragile.

I've always hated candy corn. It has annoyed me for the last time. Along with those cancer pumpkins. They are like some freak of nature.

The skin is super hard. So I eventually got out the zigsaw. The whole pumpkin thing was more work than reward this year. So maybe you got off lucky.
