You’ve scooped the seeds and made masterpieces out of pumpkins. Now it’s time for us to reveal the winner for WStoday’s inaugural Pumpkin Carving Contest. And the cream of the carving crop is this “delightful fixer upper, with great bones” work of art by Keeley J.

We’re so impressed with the detail in this carving creation — take a closer look at the door knob, the tiny windows, and the chimney. The shingles almost look 3D and the creepy tree branches give this property an extra eerie touch. Even though it appears that the ‘lights’ are on, would you dare to enter this haunted house? (Don’t look at us, we’ll admire from the outside.)

Congratulations, Keeley, for carving a spot in our list of winners — thank you for sharing your talents with WStoday.
