Cauldron of potions

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.
