For a fresh look this Halloween, ghostly pumpkins and inexpensive upholstery tacks hit it on the head.
1. Use a pencil to make small dots on the pumpkin rind to mark our desired pattern. (We found a supply of 4 dozen 1/2 –inch nailheads to be sufficient for decorating a medium-size pumpkin.)
2. Push the nail points into the dots on your pumpkin. Use a hammer, if necessary. (We didn't need one.)
3. Watch for any rot along he bottom of the pumpkin. Pumpkins kept in a cool location should last for weeks.
