While I don’t mention it often, I absolutely love carving pumpkins. There’s something so fun about making a piece of art that will only last for a few days and over the years, I’ve tried all kinds of pumpkin patterns, from sunset silhouettes of the African Serengeti to fantasy castles and dragons. So when I was asked to carve a pumpkin as part of the Glad Gruesome Challenge this year, I leaped at the chance.
The mission was simple. Choose a pumpkin, carve it for Halloween and throw the guts into a countertop compost bin lined with a Glad Compostable Bag featuring Febreze Freshness. Then check to see how well the bag contained the smell and mess of the decomposing pumpkin. The boys and I chose our pumpkins and started carving!
