My best friend Megan is a magical pumpkin carving wizard. 

This year she wanted to carve something extra awesome for the Nerdfighter pumpkin contest. Unfortunately, after hours of searching online, she couldn’t find a stencil that she really liked. The only option was to make her own stencil.

I suggested Grace Helbig, one of our favorite youtubers…because…why not? We wanted subject matter that we are nerdy about, and this definitely fit the bill. 

I lack all skill when it comes to creating things but Megan is a rock star. This was a big project that took many hours of hard work but it was a ton of fun. Because I couldn’t help with the hands-on work without ruining everything, I decided to document the whole thing and post it on the internet. 

After selecting an image and using a photo editing program to create the stencil, Megan cleaned the stencil up by hand so it would be easy to use. Then she transferred the stencil onto the (words largest) pumpkin using carbon paper. Finally, using the image as a guide and a set of wood working tools, she carved one hell of a pumpkin. 

When she was done, Megan stood back, took it all in, nodded in approval, and said, “Daily Grace? More like Daily Gourd!”

Grace, You’ve been carved. 

(ALL the credit to Megan. I’m still trying to convince her to make a post about this herself. This is art, Girl!)

October is almost upon us so I’m bringing this back from last year…
