Inherent part of Halloween is the pumpkin, in particular, carved  pumpkins with light. It, according to ancient belief, repels evil spirits from your house on the day of All Saints. Today, therefore, learn to carve a face on a pumpkin.

You will need:

Pattern with a face
Shiloh (thick needle)
Scraper (blade)


Step 1: Choose the most beautiful, the most proportionate, round and orange pumpkins. With a knife, cut out a hole in the pumpkin. If you do use a candle for light, cut a hole near the top of the stalk, if a jar / glass with flashlights, it is best to cut a hole in the bottom of the pumpkin.

The brightest light can be obtained using string lights – wrap it around a small jar and insert into the pumpkin.  You can also put a candle (or a candle) inside the pumpkin, put a candle in a glass cup and leave the top of the pumpkin open for ventilation.
