For Tennesseans, the TN flag is just a classic symbol of their love for this beautiful state. So, I decided to make a tristar pumkin this year. Basically, I got a pumpkin and cleaned it out. Then I traced out the two circles. Then, I slowly but surely chunked out the circle without cutting all the way through. Then, the easiest way to get the stars would be to use a star-shaped cookie cutter. I did not have one, so I made a star on a notecard, cut it out, and traced it onto the punkin. Then I cut out the stars. Also, to cut these things I used the pumpkin carving tools you can get at the store (I got mine at Hobby Lobby).
