Night Owl Pumpkin

Martha Stewart Living, October 2010


We used a carve-by-color technique to give this pumpkin a cool, unexpected twist.

This owl stands out against a night sky, complete with stars and a full moon. Opt for a pale Lumina pumpkin: When lit from within, the exterior surface becomes multicolored. This design has the contemporary appeal of graphic art. For a starry sky, carve stars around the pumpkin: Saw some all the way through, and shave away others with a linoleum cutter. (If you want more "sky," carve another pumpkin with just stars.)

    I love this idea. I printed this one and the witch. The patterns looks so great and printed perfectly.
    Thanks for sharing.

    @shany3913-it is working for me? you wrap white stringed christmas lights around a mason jar and put it in the pumpkin.
