Pumpkins Go Geometric for Party Decor

Carved pumpkins make great decorations for a Halloween party. While I could carve classic jack-o-lantern faces, or use a crazy template to make something artistic, this year I'm doing something different: geometric pumpkins! Here's how you can do it:

  1. Purchase 8-10 pumpkins of the same size. Instead of cutting the top off of the pumpkin, hollow out through the bottom.
  2. Create a geometric pattern on the pumpkins, repeating the same shape all over. Circles, squares, and triangles are fun; you could use a small saw, melon ball scooper, cookie cutter and hammer, sharp edged metal pipe, or electric drill to make the design.
  3. Place each pumpkin over a lit candle or small light.
  4. Arrange pumpkins festively around your room, walkway, or front porch.

Don't be afraid to take this technique and make it yours. For example you could try it on small pumpkins for a gorgeous Thanksgiving centerpiece!

We carved pumpkins this weekend.... I showed my husband this post and since it involved a drill, he was very into it. Our pumpkin turned out GREAT! I think its the best one we've ever done...and it was also pretty easy.
