“I’ve created a monster!” That’s what CAIC’s social media manager, Pam Foulke, said after she brought this terrifying creation to life. (Did you know that a carved or painted pumpkin is actually a value-added product?) Made with a pumpkin from Maryland’s Councell Farms, along with some acrylic paint, it’s a perfectly spooky decoration for any Halloween celebration.
