pumpkins

When they are babies, tiny and small...

pumpkins

Start thinking about the words you'd like to put on them...

I picked boo and Pie anyone...
Then print them out.

Take your printed words out to the garden and
tape them onto your "growing" pumpkins...

With a toothpick or something sharp (I used a lampworking tool of course) poke little holes along the lines (make sure you didn't miss any lines) Now remove the paper and connect the dots. Make sure you do not cut very deep into the pumpkin. I just lightly "scuff" the skin, that's all it takes. Don't worry, it will heal.

Now, sit back and watch your pumpkins grow.
As they do, the part you "scuffed" will scar over and grow...making for some fun pumpkins!
