With a mallet and a few cookie cutters, you can customize a whimsical pumpkin this year. Begin by slicing off the top of your gourd and removing the pulp, then rummage through your kitchen drawers to find a few interesting cookie cutters. Don’t limit yourself to traditional Halloween designs—you can also stamp letters, animals, and other fun shapes into your pumpkin! Place the cookie cutters onto the pumpkin’s exterior, and use a mallet to press each one into the skin. Carve along the outlines of the shapes with a knife or carving tool, pop in a candle, and enjoy your festively fun decoration!
