Today at ID Studios we held our annual pumpkin carving contest. We all started with a whole pumpkin and a set of carving tools but aren’t limited to only using the tools; we can use anything around the office to decorate the pumpkin. In year’s past people have even brought in their own tools or items from home.
This year everyone stuck with things around the office. Here is what the creative minds of our staff “spooked” up.
1. “Monday Mourning” Inspired by the day of the dead, this beautifully detailed pumpkin included graveyard accouterments created with fabric from our library.
2. “A Pumpkin’s Life for Me” Yo, ho, yo, ho. With the ocean just outside our window, it’s no wonder this team came up with an imaginative pirate ship accessorized with chop sticks from the kitchen!
3. “Holy Ghost” Using floating bags woven in and out of carved holes and finished with googly eyes, this pumpkin screams Halloween.
4. “It’s Lunch Time” appropriately named since our contest takes place at lunch, the stem creates the perfect fusion of burger and pumpkin.
The contest will be judged by an independent jury and social media so visit our sites and weigh in.
 The winner by ONE VOTE was #4, “It’s Lunch Time” second place went to #1 “Monday Mourning” and third went to “A Pumpkin’s Life For Me”. Thank you to everyone who voted on social media.
