Drill Carved Halloween Pumpkins

Make your pumpkin pretty instead of scary, drilling little holes in it

I know that cultivating tradition is necessary, and one shouldn’t change it without any particular reason, but how about transforming Halloween scary pumpkin a bit!? I have found this cool way to prepare Drill Carved Haloween Pumpkins for lanterns on “Crafty Nest”. I think it may be a hit with those who prefer “softer” trick-or-treat day celebration than usual.

Since it is a perfect time for pumpkin dishes, buy few and start carving them as long as it takes to gain the effect you are happy with (not scared with!). In the end, when you come to the conclusion you are not that skilled in delicate patterns, play Texas Massacre with a Drill ;)

If there is something left, cook a creamy soup or bake a pumpkin pie. Do you have any favorite recipes? We’re waiting for your comments on our fan page.
