Fall Pumpkins with drilled holes

While you have your drill out, maybe you might want to try this more sophisticated design .


Sharp knife
Large spoon for scooping
Round stickers
Electric drill with various size bits


Crave out the top of the pumpkin beveling the cut with the narrower diameter toward the bottom

Scoop out the seeds

Create a pattern for the holes by applying stickers to the pumpkin. These pumpkins have simple vertical rows,small 4 hole diamonds and linked triangle patterns.

When satisfied with the pattern,use the drill to bore holes through the pumpkin. Different size bits will give you a variety of size holes for a more decorative effect.

To light the pumpkin place a small pillar candle inside and replace top
