For the Birds

This Hitchcock-inspired masterpiece by Karyn T. in Saginaw, Texas, is a fragile piece of work. The lack of flesh between birds means less support to the pumpkin wall, so you've got to punch out bits with extreme care to prevent collapse. "The pattern itself was fairly simple but the detail nearly made my hand fall off!" Karyn said. "I used the simple tools that you can get at any grocery store, along with some wood carving tools."
