Pumpkin Decorating


Instead of carving your pumpkins the traditional way this year, try your hand at drilling holes to make your design. If you fill your pumpkins with battery-operated white string lights you can poke some of the lights through the holes- adding some extra twinkle. To decorate your pumpkins you will need:

-several pumpkins or squash in varying shapes and sizes -a knife -a metal spoon -a drill and drill bits in varying sizes

Cut a hole in the top or bottom of the pumpkin and scoop out the flesh and seeds, reserving seeds for roasting if you like. With a pencil draw your design directly on your pumpkin. Use drill to make holes in the shape of your design. Place string lights inside.
