Halloween is the typical North American party that has transcended borders and times to become, for better or worse, a global event that takes strength in many countries. One of the wonders of this celebration is, undoubtedly, the use of pumpkin that we find both in sweet and savory food recipes, as well as in the decoration of the house to make a Halloween pumpkin head.
Today, we propose this very simple and fun way to make a Halloween pumpkin head with a natural pumpkin. For this, you will need a few things that you probably already have at home. First of all, it is important that you buy a pumpkin of sufficient size to be able to work it. You will also need a sharp knife or a cutter, a natural candle or an LED light and some labor.
How to Make a Halloween Pumpkin Head
Step #1: Cut and Empty the Pumpkin
To start the process, we have to cut the top of our pumpkin. It is important to keep the stem part as it can give the character a certain character. Then, we empty the contents of it with the help of a knife and a large spoon.
Pumpkin has many seeds so it is important to remove them all. We also have to leave a certain thickness in the interior walls to be more resistant when cutting. Once we have removed all the seeds and a large part of the pulp check that the inside is well cleaned.
Step #2: Design and Cut the Face
Now we are going to draw with a marker the outlines of the eyes, the nose, and the mouth. Here appears your complete imagination as you can design them according to what you like or what you want to achieve. Remember, however, that you will have to cut the pumpkin, which is considerably thick. I recommend you not to use very complicated designs.
When you have set the face design, you will have to make the cuts to create the openings. This process is probably the most sensitive because if you go through a very abrupt movement, you will end up without being able to respect the strokes of your design. You can use a very sharp knife or a cutter. Always take into account the thickness of the pumpkin and do not go to cut a finger.
Your pumpkin is almost ready! You just need to put in it a candle of the right size or an LED light. In both cases, do not forget to place the lid to keep at the beginning to improve the light effect and give more character to your Halloween pumpkin. Enjoy it!
