Meet Karyn Poplin and Her Pumpkin People

Karyn Poplin Pumpkins

You may have seen some of Texas based Karyn Poplin’s amazing pumpkins. After all, she’s frequently a winner of pumpkin carving contests and her jack-o-lanterns have been featured on many a site.

Halloween and pumpkin carving is a family event for them. Together Karyn and her clan carve tons as many pumpkins as they can (the number has steadily grown to over 50) and display them at their home in Saginaw, Texas and as of this year a new, second location in Crowley, TX.


According to Karyn, “We use stencils, but sometimes we make our own patterns. We use the simple tools that come in the Pumpkin Masters pattern sets, and yes, we use real pumpkins.”

In 2010, their “Haunted Carousel” pumpkin (above) won 1st place in a nationwide contest, so they began a Facebook page to help spread the word of their work and to encourage visitors to come by the house and take photos of all the hard work they put into the annual holiday.
