Beware the Pumpkins

Carefully carve letters or words into a pumpkin for a spooky take on a traditional jack-o'-lantern.

Text Tower

Letters or words carved into your pumpkins send your guests a spooky message with our Text Tower. Carve one letter or word per pumpkin. Stack the pumpkins on a dowel to create a tower or line them up along an entryway to spread out your greeting.

Cut the bottoms off the pumpkins (choose one pumpkin per letter) and scrape the interiors clean. Using the photograph at right as an example, freehand-draw a letter onto each pumpkin, using a sewing tracing wheel or sharp poking tool. Use a gouge or scraping tool to remove the skin, scraping only the pumpkin surface without cutting through to the interior.

When all the pumpkins are carved with letters, remove the pumpkin stems and drill a hole in the center top of the tower's lowest and middle pumpkins. Wrap battery-powered lights around a dowel; run the dowel through the holes and into the ground to secure the tower.
