Political pumpkin-carving templates

Fall is that magical time of year when we put down a tarp on the kitchen table and start digging into some serious pumpkin guts. And we're not talking about baking with pumpkin here, though there is certainly enough of that going on. We're talking about carving up some gourds.

While we'd usually be down to do an old-fashioned jack-o'-lantern, this year the classic just doesn't seem like enough — and we wouldn't necessarily consider ourselves super-political, but as of late (for reasons that are probably already known), we've been paying a little bit more attention. It's safe to say politics is definitely of interest. So how do we marry our love of all things pumpkin with our interest in politicos? With some presidential pumpkins, that's how. 

Carving a pumpkin with some of our favorite political figures sounds pretty hard, but with the right guide, it's a cinch. And with our printable templates, you'll be on your way to having the busts of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders chillin' on your front porch in no time. We've even got a simple American flag carving template that will keep the Democrats to the left of you and the Republicans to the right from TP-ing your front yard.
