Not all jack-o'-lanterns are created equal, as proved by this carved constellation masterpiece from Martha Stewart Living. With some crafty ambition, a pumpkin, a keyhole saw, and a few other things (listed below), you can make it yourself! Happy carving.

Materials

  • Constellation art template
  • Pumpkin
  • Keyhole saw
  • Handheld electric drill
  • Gouge
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape
  • Battery-powered LED string lights or candle (pictured: Stargazer Copper Twine Lights, US$48, shopterrain.com.)
  • Straight pins
  • Scraping tool

Steps

  1. Hollow out pumpkin. Turn pumpkin on its side and use a keyhole saw or knife to carve out a circular opening in the bottom. Make the opening large enough so your hand can fit comfortably through it. Use a scraping tool to remove the flesh and seeds, scraping away the pumpkin's inner wall until it's about 1/4-inch thick. Turn the pumpkin right side up.
  2. Punch holes with drill to create constellations; connect dots with gouge. (Or print template, then cut out and tape on formations you want to use.)
  3. Place individual bulbs of a light strand in each hole and pin to secure, or, for a faster finish, insert one battery-powered candle.Source: John Dolan / Martha Stewart Living
