Decorating is my favorite thing for the holidays. I have so many decorations I can hardly wait to put them all up. Pumpkins are the signature for fall and Halloween so what better idea to find fun decorating ideas to go with them.
This idea came from Martha Stewart and is very cute. It will also give those trick-or-treaters some light to be able to see walking up to your door for Halloween. The materials you need to make these Celestial Pumpkins are:
-Pumpkins of all sizes
-Tiny white string lights
-Drill with 1/4 inch bit
You need to turn the pumpkin on its side and use a knife to cut the bottom of the pumpkin. Make sure the pumpkin is large enough for you to stick your hand in to clean out all of the yucky insides. Remove everything inside the pumpkin. Then turn the pumpkin right side up.
You need to then drill holes using a 1/4 inch bit. You can make randomly spaced holes or you can use the black tape for a guide as a uniform pattern.
Insert a string of lights through the bottom, and place one bulb in each hole on the pumpkin. Push the bulb through so that the bulb is sticking out of the hole just a little. Tuck all of the remaining lights into the pumpkin and turn the pumpkin right side up, with the light string running out from the bottom of the pumpkin. Then just plug them in and you are done. I LOVE it!!
