Illuminating Pumpkin Display
Step 1: Pin and Trace
Cut the bottom off a pumpkin, and remove the seeds and pulp. Place the leaf template in your desired spot, pin in place, and then trace the design onto the pumpkin with a pencil.
Step 2. Cut a Pattern
Using a pumpkin-carving tool, cut out the traced leaf design.
Step 3. Line with Paper
Cut pieces of yellow vellum, and pin them to the inside of the pumpkin over the leaf openings. Add a battery-operated candle.
Make Our Luminary
Use a glue gun to adhere glass florist beads to a clear jar, pressing them to the inside. Bend and twist wire around the jar's rim to form a handle.
