Don’t forget, MAKE is doing a little round-up of the best pumpkin carvings among our readers. And we’re doing a drawing to giveaway five copies of master pumpkin carver Ray Villafane’s DVD. For your gourd-like squash to be eligible, all you have to do is load images of your creations to Google+ and then tag them #makepumpkins. We’ve gotten some awesome entries already. Deadline is Monday, Nov 4, 11:59pm PT. (And if you haven’t added MAKE to your circles yet, please do!)

Above is an image from the Burt and Ernie pumpkins post we did last year.
