Carve a Coastal Pumpkin: Light it Up!

Light it Up!

Always use a synthetic flame in faux pumpkins—never a candle. Battery-operated candles, flashlights,  or even head-lamp style flashlights with the strap removed work well, and some have a flash feature. Plug-in night-light bulbs are sold specifically for artificial pumpkins; carve a space so the cord doesn't make the pumpkin wobbly.
