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.)
