While Gelotte Hommas Architecture project manager Curt Peterson’s “Gatekeeper” pumpkin sculpturedidn’t make the final cut, an amazing architecture-inspired carved pumpkin won This Old House’s 2010 pumpkin-carving contest based on user voting and editorial judgment.
This haunted carousel carved pumpkin created by Karyn T. of Fort Worth, Tex., was a hit with the home improvement magazine’s readers and judges and took home the $500 grand prize. Says the pumpkin’s creator:
“I found the perfect sized pumpkin to do an all-around design, and had this one tucked in the back of a folder. The top is held up by skewers, and when the wind blew through the pumpkin it gave the illusion of it moving. It was the hit of the neighborhood!”
