Carve a Hoover Pumpkin!


Be the only person on your block with a pumpkin carved in the likeness of our 31st president!

Click on the drawing below for a larger image. Print it out and tape it to the side of your pumpkin. You can enlarge it or shrink it on a photocopier to fit the size of your pumpkin. Cut the black areas all the way through the pumpkin and remove, but only scrape away the gray areas--don't cut them all the way through.

This pattern was designed by Rachel Young and first published in the Cedar Rapids Gazette on October 24, 1999. Reprinted with permission (c) 1999. The Gazette, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
