Carving pumpkins can be hard...I've never mastered the art of the perfect cut. My dad used to cut ours with his jig saw. We'd draw the design on, he'd cut it out, and poof, nice lookin' pumpkins.

The one above is one I made last night, sans knife. Just used a special Dremmel made for pumpkin design. Made a sad pumpkin. That's it.

But THIS is the coolest thing I've seen so far -- The SELF-CARVING PUMPKIN!

The idea is simple...drill a few holes around where you'd normally cut eyes, nose, mouth, etc....

Spread peanut butter over those holes.

Set the pumpkin out.
