It’s Halloween; time to see those spooky treats, ghostly makeup tutorials and scary costumes all over the internet.
To be honest, we don’t celebrate Halloween but.. because I’m a huge lover of DIYs and even a bigger fan of those glowing carved pumpkins, I’ve been wishin to carve a pumpkin so I took Halloween as a great excuse to create a pumpkin décor!
Just to not be in that “BOO Halloween” mood and get so festive I wanted to do something a little bit different, so instead of making the famous Jack-O-Lantern character that’s having a big part on You-Tube tutorials, I wanted to create this cute yet not too spooky carved pumpkin.
Without further ado let’s start by the things you’ll need for this DIY:
STEP 1: Hollowing the pumpkin
This was my best part until I heard about the Trypophobia (try not to Google it because you’ll regret it the rest of your life!) Anyways, start by drawing a circle on the top of the pumpkin using the marker then with a knife start cutting the top following the circle you’ve just made. You can use a carving knife, it’s more easy!
STEP2: Scoop out the insides
With the scooping spoon, remove the seeds and try not to press hard on the sides. This may seems disgusting for some of you but think of it as you’re scooping ice-cream! Close enough Haha
STEP3: Draw the pattern
Now when your pumpkin is ready, take the marker and plan your favorite pattern. I love flowers, that why I chose to make a floral pattern and I used a tape as a guide for an exact measurement.
Here comes the hard part, start drilling using different bits that match your pattern (I feel like I wrote the world pattern a hundred times haha) and if you don’t have a power drill, you can use a barbecue skewer… But let me tell you that it’s messier, takes time and more effort but it’s totally worth it!
STEP5: Make it GLOW
It’s finally time to light your pumpkin up! You can either use glow sticks or candles to make your pumpkin glowing
And you’re done!
