Picture of Gourd Snake swallowing a baby pumpkin
Halloween gives innocent vegetables a chance to show off their darker sides.

Inspired by the Calvin and Hobbes horror show of snowmen, I wanted a halloween pumpkin that was easy to make, but that had a playful narrative element.

Speckled gourd
Baby pumpkin
Small dried corn cob
Small carving knife or X-acto knife
Tea light
2 papaya seeds or buttons

I have always wanted to carve something with one of these gourds, but never figured out what! This is fantastic.
