Witch Silhouette Pumpkin
Inspired by paint-by-numbers kits, our carve-by-color technique requires scraping away the skin and sawing holes in strategic spots to create a pumpkin that looks richly textured and multitonal.
For the best results, look for a pumpkin that suits the particular size and shape of your chosen template. Also, be sure to look for one that's firm all over -- soft spots near the stem or base can indicate premature rot.
This witch's glowering appeal is all about her evil eyes and malicious mouth -- you cut through the pumpkin only in those few spots and then scrape away the skin to create her creepy complexion and the full moon.
