Dried nuts, seeds and spices (like whole walnuts, black beans, cloves or star anise)
1. Carve an opening out of the top or bottom of the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds. Replace the cutout.
2. For nut eyes: Draw eyes on the pumpkin with the marker; carve out. Wipe off remaining marker with a damp cloth. Place nuts in cutout sections, piercing with a toothpick to attach if needed.
3. For beak (center): Complete Step 2, then carve a triangle out of a discarded eye cutout. Attach with a toothpick.
4. For googly eyes (right): Skip Steps 1 and 2. Use discarded rinds from other pumpkins to make eyes. Use the melon baller to scrape partway through the rind for pupils and mouth shape (or press nuts, seeds and spices into the rind for a mouth, using a toothpick to start the hole if needed). Attach eyes with toothpicks and press seeds or spices into space for pupils.
5. For scooped eyeballs (left): See slide 5, Step 3.
