I wish you were sitting on my front porch so you could see how pretty this holey pumpkin really looks!!! It glows and illuminates everything around it! I’ve been wanting to make this holey pumpkin for a couple of years. I’ve seen the holes made with a drill bit but I didn’t want to buy a new bit for my hubby’s drill. So I put on my thinking cap and came up with an alternative method for making the holes that worked just great! First I cut the top of the pumpkin off making a lid. And cleaned the lid of all seeds and fibrous strands or guts! Then I scooped out all the innards of the pumpkin…
until it was nice and clean! This was the hardest part!
Taking an apple corer, I twisted the corer against the skin of the pumpkin making clean looking holes. This was much easier than I thought!
Some of the stringy flesh from the inside of the pumpkin broke away from the shell, so I just pulled it off and put it in the trash bowl. I made random holes and groupings of 3 holes in no specific pattern. I worked around the pumpkin it was holey all over! So easy!
After I cleaned up the outside of the pumpkin I put a candle inside and put it on the porch! After a little while I traded the candle for a battery operated one on a timer! Smart, huh?
This is such an easy way to decorate a pumpkin… and not just for Halloween! This holey pumpkin will take us all the way to Thanksgiving! If you give this diy a try, remember to email me a picture of your project!!!
