    I love fall! Drill little holes in pumpkins

      Add twinkle to your fall nights with these magical pumpkin lanterns. Instead of carving traditional faces, drill tiny holes into each pumpkin. Use strings of tiny white lights to illuminate the pumpkins, creating star-studded globes sure to delight any ghost or goblin. I absolutely love this idea. Outdoor Halloween Decor by Martha Stewart.

    Drill holes in a hollowed-out pumpkin, insert a strand of Christmas lights ... nifty!

    “After you scoop out and carve your pumpkin, dip it in a large container of bleach and water (use a 1 tsp:1 gal mix). The bleach will kill bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer. Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add 2 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water. Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.”

    These cookie-cutter pumpkins are anything but run-of-the-mill. They take no time to make and will add a gorgeous glow to your porch or walk. |
