Lace-Patterned Pumpkins

Steps:3
Not all pumpkins are orange, nor are they necessarily destined to become leering jack-o'-lanterns. The designs used on these pumpkins, carved freehand, mimic the lacelike openwork of 18th-century pierced creamware dishes, and turn any pumpkin (especially a pale Lumina) into an intricately patterned lamp.
Materials
  • Pumpkin or squash
  • Wood-carving tools
