Introduction: Haunted House Pumpkin
Carving AMAZING pumpkins is not that difficult, as long as you have the right tools for the job. first, find your pattern, and print it out.
Next, find a pumpkin that your pattern will fit well on.
Cut the top off your pumpkin, making sure of two things: That 1.) The piece that you cut out as the "lid" is big enough to comfortably fit your hand into, so that you can effectivelyuse the scraper tool to clean the inside of your pumpkin after removing goop, and seeds. 2.) Make sure to make your cuts at a angle, so that the lid will be able to sit back on the pumpkin without falling in.
Clean out your Pumpkin, and using tape, affix the cut out pattern to it, doing the best you can to keep it smooth, un creased of folded.
Using either the marking tool (pictured) or a push pin, carefully poke holes along the pattern, taking time to make sure that you follow the pattern closely.
Remove the pattern, and use the saw tools to cut out your marked sections/ I suggest waiting to push out the pieces until you are done cutting out the marked areas.
Use the pusher tool to remove the cut out pieces, set your new jack-o-lantern outside with a candle or light inside, and assuming you are of legal age to partake, enjoy a glass of homemade wine to celebrate a job well done! (That Instructable will be written soon!)
