Get ready, pumpkin fans… this is a simple, modern way to decorate your pumpkin this Halloween. I was looking for an artistic way to create a no-mess jackolantern and thought why not try string art.

1. Draw your letter or design on the flattest part of your pumpkin.
2. Pound in nails along your design. Leave 1/4 to 1/2 inch between the nails. Some softer pumpkins you can just use your hands to push the nails in.
3. Tie your embroidery thread in a tight knot on a corner nail. This is where you will get started. Trim off end of thread.
4. Now the fun part! Start stringing your thread through the nails in whatever design you like.
