Wise Owl Pumpkin

Pumpkins are thick-skinned, but it's easy to poke through them for a new take on decorating. Here, two miniature pumpkins become a wise owl.

  • Minature pumkins

  • Toothpicks

  • Pumpkin seeds

  • Skewers

  • Pearberry

  • Almond

  • Chrysanthemum plume


  1. Secure pumpkins together with skewers.

  2. For eyes, push toothpicks through the tips of two pumpkin seeds, insert in pumpkin, and fan out slightly; repeat several times. A pearberry completes each.

  3. To add a chrysanthemum plume, make a hole with a toothpick and insert stem. For the beak, dig out a small opening and wedge in an almond.
