Step 1. Draw a circle around the pumpkin stem and cut out a hole.
Step 2. Get your hands dirty and gut the pumpkin!
It's slimy, and it took me forever.
If you want save your seeds to roast later!
Here's all my pumpkin's guts.
Step 3. Find a pattern on the internet of what you want to carve into your pumpkin.
I chose Yoda, because I love Yoda.
Print it out, cut around the pattern and tape it to your pumpkin.
Step 4. trace the pattern onto the pumpkin by poking holes on the outline
Step 5. Once you have traced the whole pattern, remove the paper and rub flour onto the holes you have created.
This allows you to see your markings better.
Step 6. Carve away!!! Take your time and start small.
I messed up on his nose, because I took out too big of a chunk.
Step 7. Buy a battery operated light to put inside your pumpkin!
