Halloween Pumpkin Craft
Sections of the pumpkin are cut out to make holes, often depicting a face, which may be either cheerful, scary, or comical. Many and different tools can be used to carve out the gourd, from simple knives and spoons to specialized instruments, typically sold in holiday sections of North American grocery stores. Printed stencils can be used as a guide for spooky designs. After carving, a light source, such as a candle, is placed inside the gourd, and the top is put back into place. The light is normally inserted to illuminate the design from the inside and add an extra spookiness.
