In the past i never knew what to do with an old pumpkin. I used to just trough them out, but now i figured out a new use for the old pumpkins.
Step 1: Materials
If your starting from scratch:
-Carving tool or knife
-Something to scoop out the inside the "guts" of the pumpkin
Step 2: Just Add the Food
This step is pretty much self explanatory. Just add the bird food and watch the birds that visit your pumpkin, but be aware that the occasional squirrel may come crash the party.
Step 3: New Pumpkin
If you decide to use a new pumpkin your going to need to cut the top off and clean out the guts. Once that is done you can either carve something in the pumpkin or just add the food.
