  1. Using a knife, slice off enough of the leafy top to create a flat base.

  2. Insert black-headed pushpins to form eyes; for the mouth, cut a half-moon into the vegetable with a paring knife, and fill it in with a black marker.

  3. Arrange several in a shallow bowl, varying the heights and the shapes.
