Houdini Jack-o’-Lantern

By Tom Interval

Each year I carve a different Houdini-themed jack-o’-lantern, so here’s 2018’s offering.  If you’d like to know how I did this, the basic steps follow; below them are links to previous Houdini jack-o’-lanterns, which you can view on my Houdini blog. Happy Halloween!

 

As mentioned above, here are the steps I took to make this particular jack-o’-lantern.

  1. Select an image.
  2. Increase the image’s contrast and customize it for carving.
  3. Print the design template and trace its outline.
  4. Okay, we have everything we need (pumpkin-carving tools out of frame).
  5. Clean and gut the pumpkin.
  6. Tape the template to the pumpkin.
  7. Use a safety pin to transfer the design to the pumpkin.
  8. Use pumpkin-carving tools to carefully carve out the design.
