Photo 2

2. Scoop out the insides as shown in Photo 2.

3. Cut the following slits using the picture for inspiration: two for the eyes, wide and tall enough to accommodate the marbles; one for the end of the nose; and one for the mouth. Cut more slits around the gourd and on the edges of the lid.

4. Place a toothpick vertically into each eye opening in the gourd, where the marble is desired. Glue the marble to the toothpick. Let dry.

Pumpkin-carving tips:

Protect the work surface with newspapers or a plastic tablecloth. Cut off the top or bottom of the pumpkin, cutting a small notch for easy alignment. Scoop out the pumpkin using a strong spoon or ice cream scoop. Clean off the soft side of the lid as well. Carve carefully and slowly with a long, thin, sharp knife. Special pumpkin-cutting tools are also available wherever Halloween supplies are sold.
