Carve a pumpkin using free online templates

Gadgets
[MUSIC] This Halloween, I'm gonna teach you how to add some extra flair to your pumpkin, without breaking the bank. Some of us, like myself, for example, aren't very good at drawing. Luckily, there are a lot of websites out there with free templates, that can help me carve the perfect pumpkin. Sites like Martha Stewart and [UNKNOWN] offer some good templates for beginners. If you want a design that's a little more crazy, I would definitely trying Googling a specific idea. [MUSIC] To get the job done, you'll need a nice big pumpkin, and a template from the internet. I chose this one of Philip J. Fry, my favorite character from the show, Futurama. You will also need a pair of scissors to cut up a design. A big spoon or ice cream scooper to clean out the pumpkin. A sharp knife for carving. Some push pins, a marker. Cape, and either a candle or an LED light, to bring it to life. We are going to start by cutting at the top of the pumpkin near the stem. Make sure to place the knife at a 45 degree angle, so the lid will have a place to rest. When you replace it. If you cut straight down, the lid will simply fall through the pumpkin. Once that's done, use a spoon to remove the seeds and the innards of the pumpkin. I recommend saving the seeds and toasting them later for a tasty treat. The pumpkin may be a little dirty, you may have to wipe it down with a paper towel or a napkin. Print out the template you've found online and use a pair of. Scissors to cut out the areas you will be carving into the pumpkin. Tape the template onto the pumpkin and use a marker to trace the carving lines. For the spots you can't get with the marker, use the pushpins. Next, we're going to remove the template and begin carving along the pattern. [MUSIC] And there you have it. All you have to do now is place the candle or LED light inside of the pumpkin. The possibilities really are endless with this. You could use a drill to make some quick holes in the pumpkin. Cookie cutters for cool designs. A potato peeler for extra surface details. Or even for your next holiday party throw a bluetooth speaker inside. Just have fun with it. Hm, not too bad not too bad at all. [MUSIC] [LAUGH]
