Step 1 - Prepare the ground
Prepare your work plan, keep away anything that could fall or break, and place newspaper under the pumpkin. Take gloves, big gloves, especially do not use gloves of the "Mappa" type which do not protect anything from an unfortunate stab.
Step 2 - Make a beautiful drawing
We draw with a felt tip the parts to be sculpted. A children's felt is perfect, because it is erased with a sponge, it is very practical in case you have missed his devastating smile for example.
Step 3 - Open the skull
Hmm ... it's a delicate step. Hold the pumpkin firmly and stick your knife in the path of the hat. You will immediately realize the hardness of a pumpkin. For this reason, it is not recommended to let children do this work. Push your knife in at least 5 cm, the skin of the pumpkin is very thick.
Meticulously continue to follow your route, and plan behind a ventilation (a hole) almost plumb where the candle will be, to let out the heat and not to burn the hat.
Here, the hat cut is not round, and the stalk of the pumpkin is a precious ally to remove this cover.
Step 4 - Clear your head
Using a large spoon first, scoop out the inside of the pumpkin, do not be afraid to scrape the walls, there is room. You have to do it otherwise you will see stringy ends through the holes.
Step 5 - Sculpt your pumpkin
Attention, do not forget to put the gloves back on. And always, push your knife deeply or the piece to be removed risks getting caught and you get upset, which is never very good with a knife in your hands.
Ouch, my nose! Small details require patience. If the part to be cut is narrower than the blade of your knife, take a suitable blade. Here, the blade of the Swiss knife can fold at any time, it's really scary, you swim in the middle of a horror film.
And here it is finished! If some make real works of art, nothing beats your own pumpkin, it is the most beautiful horrible in the world!
Step 6 - Light up your lantern
Take a flat candle, they are often sold in packs of 10 or more. Those with an aluminum base are the most practical. To avoid burning yourself, plant the end of the knife in the candle, light the wick and lower the candle to the bottom. Help yourself with a spoon by pressing the candle to remove the tip of the knife.
