I like to go big with our annual pumpkins -- the more bizarre the better. Recently, my three children and I happened upon the idea of combining some of our pyro inclinations with a bit of obsessive detail to match patterns, which resulted in the Flaming Porcupine Pumpkin Creation. Sure, Halloween is still over a week away, and we're already lighting pumpkins on fire, but that's part of what makes Halloween so darn fun. What other time of year can you light fruit on fire and get away with it?
Technically our animal does not look so much like a porcupine as it might a pig, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and we like to believe our creation is a porcupine. Take a gander and let us know what you think, and if you have something similar to share with us here at DIY Life, leave it in the comments.
