Polka Dot Pumpkin

Candle lit polka dot pumpkin

Today it was time for an annual tradition I have with a couple of my friends. When Halloween starts approaching we carve a small pumpkin and place it on the grave of our mutual friend. We've done it every year since she passed. It's one of the ways in which we honour her memory.

Since we are certainly no experts at carving pumpkins, it's always a surprise to see what it ends up like. This year one of my friend's had seen on television, on Finland Swedish lifestyle program Strömsö, how they made polka dot pumpkins. So we decided to give it a go! We didn't exactly have the right kind of tools at hand, but managed to make pretty okay dots using a potato peeler.  It turned out pretty cute and different to what we've done before.
