I needed a small one to fit on my wonky pumpkin stand from Michaels. Anything to large, and that cheesy stand just topples over. I think I got it just right this year.
Since it's a white pumpkin, the obvious choice was Mr. Jack Skellington from Nightmare Before Christmas. A short internet search yielded a free pattern and last night I got to work. I use a toothpick to mark the pattern and a little saw from an old pumpkin master kit to carve. Since he is small, this Jack can live in the fridge until Halloween while doing double duty at the party on Saturday. He gets to make two Halloween appearances this year.
