Yesterday, kids and parents tuned into Sesame Street’s 42nd season on PBS. Yesterday, I also found these adorable Bert and Ernie pumpkins on the Craft blog. Coincidence? I don’t think so. (It’s no coincidence that everyone loves Sesame Street, right?)

I think it’s clever that the jack-o’-lanterns go beyond simple carving, and employ paint, faux fur, and even other tiny pumpkins to achieve the desired effect. Plus, to this day, Ernie is my favorite Sesame Street character, so I’m outta-my-gourd-crazy about these guys. Halloween’s just around the corner.

  1. Love this. I never realized how much Ernie's head resembled a pumpkin! I liked Ernie but the Snufalufagus was always my favorite, docile character. He may be a bit more involved to construct out of pumpkins however.
