Unless you're planning to light this etched pumpkin, there's no need to cut it open and hollow it out. If you do plan to light it, cut a circle in the pumpkin's underside to pull out its interior guts. By carving into the bottom of your pumpkin (not its top), you retain a seamless appearance for photographs. (And, yes, a pumpkin this lovely deserves its picture taken!)

To carve:

1. Sign in to BHG.com, and click above to access our free Southwestern diamond pattern. Print the pattern, and secure the page against the side of your pumpkin with tape.

2. Use a pin tool to pierce along the stencil lines, outlining the diamond shape with closely spaced pin holes. (Hint: Space pin holes approximately 1/8" apart for detailed results.)

3. Remove the stencil pattern, and keep it close by for reference. With an etching tool or gouge, etch pattern sections surrounded by dotted lines by scraping away the pumpkin skin within these areas. Wipe off shreds of pumpkin skin with a paper towel.
