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
Step 2: Wound the Apple.
Pick a spot on the apple where you can envision a face and start carving away. Keep carving until you have it perfect.
Helpful tips for perfectionists:
- Remember, most recognizable faces have two eyes a nose and a mouth.
- The best way to carve eyes is to make two holes a little more than half way towards the top of the apple.
- The best way to make a mouth is to make a hole about a third of the way to the bottom of the apples.
- The nose should just kind of appear.
Step 3: Wait.
Once you have carved the apple to your liking, leave it somewhere (preferably sunny) and wait.
A couple of days later you should be totally spooked!
