    Default "Carvable pumpkins"

    Hey, has anyone ever bought/used the carvable pumpkins they are selling at Michaels? They look like a really hard plastic...I guess you could carve a permanent jack-o-lantern from them (and they SAY they are carvable)- but I'm not sure I trust the tag....any experiences?

    I was wondering the same thing. I've put a lot of time and energy into carving pumpkins every year, just to have them turn into mush in little or no time...I take pictures, but that ain't like keeping the real thing to display next year. To reiterate Lostboy's question: Are they really able to be carved with any kind of accuracy? Thanks.

    Here are a couple of the ones my wife made last year. I think she made 7 total. We weighted the pumpkins down with homemade beanbags stuffed with BBs. I put a little hole in back of each one for small white christmas lights. They look great!

    Is that skull pumpkin completely carved or is it just surface-carved?

    And if those are completely carved, did she just have to hand hollow out the pumpkins?

    What is the material like INSIDE (ie behind the 'shell')-

    First it was Spooky Town stuff I couldn't get in my area,,,, Now you are teasing me with carvable pumpkins that I can use year after year!?!?!? This "Michaels" place seems really nice. But I've never seen one. Where would the closest one be to Richmond In.?

    Fear not, Spooky Chuck. If you really want carveable pupkins from Michaels, just toss some in your cart, and buy them online.

    Upon further investigation, it appears these carveable pumpkins are an in-store item only. Sorry about the bum steer above. But, on the plus side, there is a michaels not too far from my house.
