How To Make It:

  1. Cut out the bottom of each pumpkin. Save the bottoms to support the candles.
  2. Trim the stem on the body pumpkin even with the top of the pumpkin.
  3. Transfer the patterns onto the pumpkins.
  4. Using a knife or carving tools, cut out the openings.
  5. Use a gouge to carve the tongue, eyes, and chest, carving just deep enough to reveal the inner rind.
  6. Secure the gourd tail, ears, and feet with wood skewers.
  7. Add a half radish for the nose, with a skewer or toothpick.
  8. In the same way, secure the (saved) bottom of the head pumpkin to the top of the body pumpkin.
  9. Add the candle, and then place the head over the top, securing it with skewers.
  10. Hot-glue sunflower seeds to the face for whiskers, and wrap the neck with a collar.
