Rat Motel Pumpkin

Here is our creepy "Rat Motel" pumpkin that Olivia and I carved last night. This design is inspired by a pumpkin on Martha Stewart's website.

The concept is simple:

1. Carve out the bottom of the pumpkin and remove the seeds and goop.
2. Carve out circles in various places on the pumpkin to place your rubber rats.
3. Insert a string of Christmas lights inside the pumpkin so that it glows from within.
4. Place your rats in the holes.

I carved more holes than I had rats so that more light would show through. That rats are just sitting in the holes, so let's hope it doesn't get too windy between now and Halloween.

Can't wait for Trick or Treaters!!!
