#3. Pumpkin Lanterns
Right so now I think of of this post could have worked for yesterday too but with today’s topic being light in honor of the Hindu festival Diwali, I thought I would share my pumpkin lanterns with you. Plus it’s nice to think of my them letting light in and chasing away the bad spirits.
Next year I will be making lots more of them and lighting the whole of Spring Park as they were so simple and effective. After cutting the top of and scraping all of the sees out I removed as much of the flesh as possible then using an electric drill I made lots of little holes for the light to shine through. If you have different size drill bits you can make patterns.
See you tomorrow all x
