Make PumpYEkins Great Again: Dublin woman makes CNN

After 30 years of “pumpkinizing” the news, one Dublin woman became the news.

Each year, Jeanette Paras of Dublin unveils a giant pumpkin painted like a celebrity on her front porch—a humble hobby she pursues for self-enjoyment.

This year, Paras’ muse was rapper and Trump supporter Kanye West.

She calls it PumpYEkin.

The 315-pound pumpkin took seven hours to paint while Paras spent nine painstaking hours on the “Make Pumpkins Great Again” hat—the cherry on top.

Her efforts did not go unnoticed, though.

CNN picked up the story, check it out here.

To keep up with Paras’ work and see her creations from previous years like Donald Trump, Kim Jung Un, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Barack Obama, and Prince Harry, follow Paras Pumpkins on Facebook.
