Carved pumpkins and gourds are wonderful ways to mark the festival of Halloween, which falls on Saturday 31 October. Lit up at night either inside or outside your home, they'll frighten away the ghosts and skeletons! It's really easy to carve your own Halloween pumpkins and ward off the evil spirits with the Dremel 300 multi-tool - just follow our step-by-step guide.
Using a pencil, draw your design onto the pumpkin. Press lightly at first until you are happy with the design and then go over the lines to clearly define them.
Using a Dremel 300 multi-tool and high speed cutter accessory, cut around the top of the pumpkin to form a lid. Set to one side. Scoop out the seeds and some of the flesh of the pumpkin with a spoon making sure that you do not puncture the skin
Use the Dremel to carefully cut out the shapes. Work into the corners and curves carefully to ensure a neat finish.
Put a candle or nightlight inside the pumpkin and light to finish.
