here are the steps:
- purchase hollow, fake pumpkins, 3 inch stencils and a hot knife (pictured).
- stencil the letters or drawings on the pumpkins.
- use the narrow, sharp blade of the tool. carve out your letters being careful not to create a narrow space that will break off. (this means that you may have to adapt some of the letter shapes.)
- cut off the lid of the pumpkin. clean out the pieces inside. use a small battery operated votive candle to light the inside of the pumpkins. enjoy!
