Carving pumpkins and gourds

Using the pencil, draw your design onto the pumpkin. Press lightly at first until you are happy with the design and then go over the lines to clearly define them.

Using the Dremel 200 Series with the 193 High Speed Cutter accessory, cut around the top of the pumpkin to form a lid. Set to one side. Scoop out the seeds and some of the flesh of the pumpkin with a spoon making sure that you do not puncture the skin.

Take the Dremel 200 Series with the 193 High Speed Cutter accessory and carefully cut out the shapes. Work into the corners and curves carefully to ensure a neat finish.

Put a candle or nightlight inside the pumpkin and light to finish.
