Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Step 1

First, if you decide to use a pattern rather than freehand your design, trace along its edge with a washable marker or perforate along the design with a skewer. We chose the perforation technique and found that the easiest way to adhere the pattern to the pumpkin was to secure it with a push pin. Then follow along the pattern, pushing holes into the pumpkin with the skewer.

STEP 2

Step 2

Now we are ready to begin carving! Using your Dremel Cordless Rotary Tool on high speed and a Dremel Carving and Engraving accessory, (we used Dremel accessory #191) begin engraving the design into the pumpkin by following the pattern laid out by the perforations.

STEP 3

Step 3

Once you outline your design, etch away any larger spaces you wish to add a glow to with a Dremel High Speed Cutter. We used accessory #194.

STEP 4

Step 4

Finally, simply smooth out any bumps in your design with a Dremel sanding band accessory. We used the EZ Drum Mandrel. Your pumpkin is now ready to shine anywhere festive decorations are wanted!
