Try a new pumpkin carving technique this Halloween and attempt a DIY fretwork pumpkin. Requiring a heavy duty tool and a little elbow grease, this pumpkin craft will add a little glamour to your Halloween decorating.
Using just two different-sized drill bits, this intricate pumpkin design is fairly easy to recreate. Use painters tape to mark where you'll want your drill to penetrate the pumpkin for an even design or get extremely crafty and free hand the entire look.
Cut out the bottom of the pumpkin and scoop out the insides to turn the DIY fretwork pumpkin into the perfect DIY lamp shade for a candle or LED candle -- thus making this pumpkin an ultra modern Jack-O-Lantern.
