To Carve:

  1. Use a grey pumpkin for the rat. Cut a circle from the bottom of the pumpkin.
  2. Transfer two ear patterns to the circle.
  3. Transfer the eyes and mouth patterns onto the pumpkin.
  4. Using a knife or carving tools, cut out the openings.
  5. Use a gouge to carve a thin mouth, carving just deep enough to reveal the inner rind.
  6. Use half a gourd for the nose and attach it using wood skewers.
  7. Push pieces of floral cloth wire into the nose for whiskers.
  8. Add a chef's hat, a wire whisk, and checkered dish towel to complete the design.
