So Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday at the moment, owing in part to getting dumped around the holiday last year, and having not-so-fond memories of waking up November 1 last year still drunk and covered in corn syrup blood (and that junk does NOT come out of your sheets very easily, let me tell you.) So anyway, whoops!

- Needle-nose pliers
- A serrated-knife

Step two: Using the pliers, pull the cookie cutter out of the pumpkin.
Step three: Follow the pattern of the cookie cutter with a serrated knife.
Step four: With one hand inside of the pumpkin, push the cut shape out of the pumpkin.
