Cat Jack o Lantern

I was a little too late this year in purchasing a pumpkin. The only ones that were left at the farm where I usually buy them were flat ones. So I looked for a simple motif to use on it and decided to print out my cat pattern that I have used for other projects and carve it into the pumpkin.

Halloween Templates for Plant Sticks

Cat, Ghost, Pumpkin and Bat Templates (this template has other motifs as well. Isolate the cat and print it out alone.)

Instructions:

To create this Jack o Lantern, you first need to cut a star shaped lid at the top of the pumpkin. Once you have the lid removed, first remove the stringy pumpkin meat and the seeds. Then take an ice-cream scoop and start scooping the side walls of the pumpkin until the walls are about 1/2 inch or 2.5 cm thick. Print out the pattern to a size that is appropriate for the size of the pumpkin. Place the pattern over the pumpkin and use a pricking needle and prick holes on the pattern markings to indicate where to cut afterwards. Then cut the markings to form the owl. Once finished, insert a small candle or a tea light at the bottom of the pumpkin and light it up. The candle should not be too high or it may burn the lid. If using a higher candle, keep lid off when burning the candle.
