    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.

    Use a drill to make holes. Scoop seeds out of the bottom, not top.
