Pumpkin Lanterns

Light the way into fall with this DYI pumpkin project

Halloween is my favorite holiday, the lights, the leaves, the lore!!!   When you think about the holiday one of the first images that enters the your mind has got to be the pumpkin.  It’s history and mythology date so far back that the stories have taken on a life of their own and you can’t tell truth from a tale told with too much whiskey on the breath.  Since the original folk tale comes from Ireland we can be certain it is at least a wee bit o’ the latter.  You cannot begrudge this humble little squash.  It transforms every year into anything your imagination can muster.   This yellow vegetable will metamorphose into anything and everything; from a witch, to a scarecrow, a monster, or a haunted mansion, Darth Vader, a pie or possibly humble Jack himself.  What is it about the glowing pumpkin that seems to beckon autumn to come just a little faster?  Whatever magic this modest orange globe has, I want to capture it this year and use it to help myself and my neighbors ease into fall a little more smoothly. Beckoning thoughts of spiced cider and crunching leaves, we enter the time of year where you pull your sweater a bit closer and take a moment to marvel at the moon.   So join me on the way to fall with a little craft that is so very simple but so very full of autumnal whimsy….
