Picture of Spooktacular Carved Apple
Strapped for ideas on how to celebrate the autumnal equinox this year? Is sacrificing virgins loosing its edge? Well then, maybe here is something new for you!

If you carve a face in an apple, and let it sit in the open for a couple of days, it shrivels into a really spooky little head.

Step 1: Go get stuff.

To do this you will need:

-an apple (preferably slightly whithered)
-an exacto knife or carving blade
-a ridiculously large wood saw
-time and patience

What's the purpose of the saw? I like that you gave ideas as to where on the apple the eyes & mouth should be carved.
Maybe to cut the bottom of the apple so it sits, not rolls? Or, just to scare on lookers, I bet. That'll keep 'em away so you can concentrate!

I'm a little more scared out of your out-of-focus photography.
