I’ve picked up some tiny white pumpkins with which I will have my way.
I want to do something nice, I’ll probably try Martha Stewart’s Lacework Pumpkin (previous mention). I am interested in making something that can last. So I’m counting on the fact that they are small to help it (whatever the final result) to hold it’s structure. The only time I’ve seen some scientific method applied to preserving Jack-O-Lanterns, the results were not heartening (see myscienceproject.org). Of course, if I feel like a long-term commitment, I could freeze-dry my art.
I’m also working on part 2 of my pirate cannon instructable and the soon-to-come ship’s helm project. I hope by the new week, to turn this indiscriminate heap of foam into 2 amazing Halloween props:
