I used a Hubbard squash with a mini pumpkin for her ears, and corn husks for her permanent-damaged hair. I look for unusual shaped pumpkins and noticed this squash and even though it was harder to carve (the eyes,teeth , and etc.) I loved the effect. I always end up using a paring knife for my maine tool and finish up with some craft paint. Myrna S.Salt Lake City, UtahEnter our Pumpkin-Carving Contest today!
