Transform a large pumpkin into a cooler for homemade soda.
1. Remove the top third of a large pumpkin, leaving a jagged edge. Remove innards.
2. Using a needle or pin, trace your design. Carve along the design with a linoleum cutter (or other carving tool).
3. Rub exposed edges with petroleum jelly to prevent drying out.
4. Fit a plastic bowl slightly smaller than your pumpkin inside and fill up with ice and drinks.
Give any kind of suckers some spirit by draping them in tissues, tying with ribbon and drawing on a face with black marker. They’re spooky stuck into a foam skull (or a small cup or vase) and a sweet take-home treat.
