DIY: Carve a Pumpkin for Halloween

Ichigo girls .... let's have fun!
Halloween is almost here! One must know how to make Halloween pumpkins. Pumpkins are available at most supermarkets and are very easy to make. You just need a pumpkin, a knife and some dose of creativity.  They are the ultimate Halloween decor.  
Here's how to carve a pumpkin from Martha Stewart

1.Cut a Hole in the Pumpkin

The first step is hollowing out the pumpkin. Use a keyhole saw to cut the hole. If you'll be using a candle for illumination, you can cut the hole in the pumpkin's top.  For electric lights, make the hole in the bottom or side so you can hide the cord.

2. Scoop Out the Flesh 

Scoop out flesh, pulp, and seeds with a plaster scraper or a big spoon.

3. Transfer Your Design
Now it's time to transfer your selected designs . Affix it to the pumpkin, and trace the design by poking holes with a fork or a sharp awl

4. Carve the Features

Remove the template and carve along the pattern with a miniature saw or knife. If you want to make holes in the pumpkin for eyes, use a drill equipped with a 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch spade bit.

You can also get creative with patterns and designs.

Tip: Prevent exposed areas of the pumpkin's flesh from turning brown by applying a film of Vaseline.

♥Light up your pumpkin and enjoy!
