It’s 3 O’Clock on Halloween. We have pumpkins. We have fake blood. We have sweets and chocolate. And we have to go trick-or-treating. So we have to get busy. First off we need a Jack-o’-lantern (that word is not easy to type BTW).
So busy we got. Preparation is the key. Scaring children is the objective! So to get to this:
You first need to draw out a template. Get a piece of A4 paper, fold it and draw out your design on one half:
Cut out your design with scissors and then use selloptape to secure the template onto the pumpkin:
Run a biro around the template to transfer the design to the pumpkin:
Slice off the top of your Lantern-to-be. Gouge out the innards with your hands and a spoon:
Now use a very thin serrated knife (like an evil letter opener) to slice out the eyes and mouth:
Wipe off any remaining biro marks and pop a tea light into the brain cavity:
Now turn off the lights. Evil Jack-o’-lantern appears!
Now send out the minions to gather treats while you hold the fort with a tin of sweets should any foolhardy soul dare to knock…(yes one of them is wearing a plastic bag on his head)
Happy Halloween folks!
