(And to save you from that mess — just sayin'!)
Spooky spoiler alert — they look just as good.
Here's what you do:
1. Purchase foam pumpkins and a carving kit from the craft store.
2. Carve your foam pumpkins as you see fit.
Pro tip: Laura and Zack, the creators of Westbury Field of Screams, use a box cutter to carve their foam pumpkins.
3. Put glow sticks on the inside and you have your reusable pumpkin!
Pro tip: If the colors fade over the years, you can always touch them up with a little orange spray paint.
Maybe carve ONE real pumpkin for tradition's sake and do this for the rest of the patch. ??
