//thanks to pcapelo for letting me do this instructable. :) i thought of the idea three days ago, then found out that he already did something kind of similar to this... i got permission from him to do this. if you have an extra solar torch, go to his instructable and make a shhnaazzyy lantern!
here goes my very first instructable.
Step 1: Get Your Materials!!
-a solar powered garden light
Step 2: Take Apart Solar Torch
but if you want, the top should twist off really easily so that you end up with the "UFO" and LED thing at the bottom (like the third picture). if not, then that's what hammers are for.
Step 3: Make Your Jack-o-lantern! (yay)
-make sure to make the hole at the top (where the stem is) a little more than the circumference of the largest part of the glass enclosure and less than the circumference of the UFO part so that it can just sit.
-you can cover the insides in foil so that more light is reflected around the pumpkin and it'll look mighty cool.
//for mine, i wanted to make it either a robot jack-o-lantern, or the tinman from Wizard of Oz so it matches the solar cell, but i ended up not having time and rushing over to get to church to help out with stuff. -_- so what i have is the best i could do. i dont have any silver spray paint so i think ill just cover it in foil or something and make it look cool.//

and if you want to take some pictures of your wonderful masterpiece, then learn some Tips for Halloween pumpkin pictures
//...i hope i'm allowed to link to those instructables..i thought they were useful :-)
Step 4: Put on the Pumpkin's New Hat
let it charge and wait for what seems like hours on end for night to come...
take it outside...
then take pictures of your wonderful new creation!
//unfortunately i only had a kodak easyshare brick-like camera on hand so the pictures may not be too dandy, but you can still make out what everything is, so im hoping itll be fine :-)
