How to Make the Garden Scene Pumpkin
- Start with a pumpkin with the seeds and inner flesh removed. If needed, use a photocopier to enlarge or reduce the pattern to fit the pumpkin.
- Cut out the pattern and attach it to the pumpkin with tape or straight pins. If you prefer, cut the flowers apart and arrange them however you like. Using a thin marker, trace around the pattern.
- To carve the stems, use a clay loop tool (about $5 at art supply stores) to scrape along the lines you made. Make several scrapes side by side to carve the stems of the large flowers.
- To carve the heads of the large flowers, use a plunger-style apple corer to make an outer ring of smaller holes, making sure the edges of each hole touch. Then use a rubber mallet to tap a biscuit cutter through the center of the ring of holes you just made. Use the apple corer to make holes on both sides of the smaller flower.
