We "Geeked-Out" Our Pumpkins. You Can Too.

October 26, 2012 - 2:30pm


Members of the Energy Department's digital team use energy-related stencils to carve pumpkins.

Pumpkin carving is a great Halloween tradition for families around the country, and a chance for young and old alike to show a little creativity. In that spirit, earlier this month, we posted six stencils to help "energize" your pumpkins, and your Halloween. 

Last week, a couple of us got together after work to carve pumpkins and celebrate Halloween. From a CFL to an atom to a wind turbine, we had a blast carving our pumpkins in our favorite energy-related shapes. 

We quickly uploaded the pictures and made a time-lapse video of our carvings. Check it out above.

Our stencils have been downloaded more than 500 times and we hope to show your pumpkins next week.

If you haven't downloaded your stencils yet, there's still time. Halloween isn't until next week, so be sure to carve some pumpkins this weekend. Hope you enjoy these.
