Carved pumpkins never seem to last for us. I’m not sure what we’re doing wrong. They get moldy and hairy so quickly that we have to throw them out the next day. Maybe next year we’ll follow these instructions. And if I end up deciding not to carve, I’m going to paint myself a cat. The inspiration came from this black cat and by Alexander McQueen Spring 15 look # 2. I’ll spray the tip of the pumpkin with gold and my little Kitty McQueen will be ready for her Halloween debut.
