Eerie Illuminati...

Pumpkins can be decorated in so many fun ways without lots of intricate carving. This year, we hollowed out the inside of the pumpkins and then cut a a rectangle in the front to create an illumination window for a favorite design that has been printed on vellum. Simply print your art on a vellum sheet from Michael's crafts store. Cut the opening in the pumpkin and place vellum art over opening, attaching it to the pumpkin with black thumb tacks  from Staples. Use a battery-operated light to keep your pumpkin safely illuminated.
Simple and fun!
