Pumpkin Pottery

Autumn is here which means one thing,  Halloween. So grab your pumpkin spice lattes, blanket scarves and get carving some cool and original pumpkins. Here are four hacks on how to make the designing a bit easier.

Hack 1

Cut the top and back of the pumpkin for easier scraping- this also makes it easier for placing the candle inside.

Hack 2

Ever wonder how people have the patience to cut out an eight legged spider? They don’t. Use a cookie cutter and mallet to cut out shapes easily.

Hack 3

Turn your pumpkin into a drink cooler or keg, the perfect pumpkin for college students that would look great at a Halloween party. All you need to do is cut it in half, scrape out the insides and fill it with ice. Place your cans and bottles in it and you’ve got a festive and original drink cooler. For the keg: cut off the top, scrape out the insides, pour in the drink and put the top back on. Make a small hole for the plastic tap and you’re good to go.

Hack 4

To carve your favourite celebrity or cartoon, firstly pick a picture with not too much detail (cartoons tend to be easier). Print the picture out on stencil paper and use a nail to transfer it on.If done right, this looks extremely impressive.
