I picked up a few pumpkins yesterday during our leaf peeping trip, and when it began to rain today, I got out some tools and fall inspired cookie cutters to see what I could come up with.
I always cut the bottom from the pumpkin before I scoop it out, because it's easier to place the pumpkin over a lit candle and avoid a burn. That tip may have been one from Martha, I think.
I used a hammer to pound my cookie cutters into the scooped out pumpkin, but I was not sure if they would pop out easy.
I just adore this beautiful twisty pumpkin stem.
A raku pendant I made earlier this year, resembles a jack-o-lantern, don't you think?
