Halloween: Pop Out Character Pumpkin

Hey you guys...

Last year I was a little lazy. Normally, I love carving pumpkins and decorating them. But I was having one of those days where I spent the day cleaning and I could not imagine having to clean one more mess. So I decided to do a different take on pumpkin carving. 



As a child of the 80’s, I loved the movie Goonies. When it became a cult classic in my teens, I collected the “action figures” (weird I know). Having these toys sit in my closet gave me an idea. I decided that I would make a "pop out character pumpkin", as I call it.  

After I started cutting the pumpkin and occasionally laughing, my boyfriend walked over to see what I was doing. As soon as he saw sloth busting out of my pumpkin he asked, “what is wrong with you!" I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s the silly little things that make life fun. I placed this on my porch on Halloween and I caught people taking pictures of it and complementing it. Alas, I’m not the only one that thinks this is humorous, amazing, and unique.

Details, details, details: I had to include the Baby Ruth and pirate treasure to top off the look. If you haven't seen this movie you are seriously missing out.
