Great idea! We dont traditionally celebrate Halloween in NZ, but the new generations coming through are starting to claim it as a good excuse for lollies...

Thought I might try one myself to advertise that we are 'open' to kiddy callers this year. Can I ask whether you have carved right through, or just removed the skin to allow the 'glow'?
Cant seem to see where you have punched in to place candle & you dont seem to have scalped them either?

Unless these are trade secrets, can I pick your brain?

Cheers, Tama

Thanx BenZ.. I really appreciate it.

Mc: I'm working on the templates for the logs, I did move them to the Tiki carving oasis in my backyard, so any day now..I'm pickin' up the "saw".

Thanx Hewey for lookin'

Hi Clarita.. the pumpkins are foam and real easy to carve and you can save them from yr. to yr. Here's a pic of the tools and where I inserted the light source.

Gonzo: WOW..is that the pumpkin you're tryin??

Tama: Here are pics so you can see how I did it. Since I'm using battery operated lights, there was no need to open the top..so I opened just enough on the bottom to slip the lights thru and Voila!! I did carve thru the foam, 1st. I transfered the design I drew by poking holes and then I used the little serrated knives and the battery little jig saw.Thanx for lookin'.
