If you are looking for a pumpkin carving project that’s easy, a little different, and can double for great fall decor as well, pumpkin drilling is for you. You can place these all around the garden and light them with candles (careful!) glow sticks, or even those dollar store led stick up lights. If you drill the pumpkins first, then scooped them afterwards. It seemed to give more stability to the pumpkin while you drill. Yes, your drill bits will get goopy… Just un-goop, and move on. :) However, if you prefer to scoop first, more power to ya! Here’s your tutorial on how to drill pumpkins
Step One: Create a pattern and use painters tape to help you mark it onto your pumpkin. You can also use a dry erase marker to make the initial marks, then punch with a skewer to make it easier to get the drill going in the right place.
Step Two: Using various sized bits, drill straight into the pumpkin at the pre-marked spots. It helps to have someone hold the pumpkin while another person handles the drill.
Step Three: Clean the pumpkin out and it's time to light it up.
