I found a really cool twist on the traditional Jack O Lantern for Halloween this year. This technique requires NO CARVING - no pulling the nasty pumpkin guts out or smelling that lovely smell :)
Get some old crayons, if you have kiddos you will have a lot of broken ones that are perfect. All you do is get a lighter - put it under the crayon and allow the wax to melt onto the pumpkin and Voila! You have a really cool and uniquely decorated pumpkin!
