I printed out this Minnie Mouse template online, and carved the black parts out. One tip is to start the eyes and noses FIRST. If you do that last, the pumpkin will not have the strength and will break. I got a cheap $3 plastic pumpkin carving knife and a $2 dollar fake flickering candle light at Michael's. Both worked like a charm.
I think I'll get a Funkins every year and add to the collection! It was really fun to do.
