We used white Lumina pumpkins for this project, but you can use whichever pumpkin variety you like.
1. Cut a circle out of the bottom of the pumpkin large enough so a spoon can fit inside to dig out the pulp. Hollow out the pumpkin.
2. Trace a bat shape onto a piece of paper, or draw one freehand, and then use that as a template to trace the shape onto black felt (go to www.lhj.com/halloweencrafts for a bat template). Cut out the shape and set aside.
3. Use a china marker to draw a moon or tree shape on the pumpkin and cut it out with a carving saw. Position a felt bat on the pumpkin (we placed ours so it partially overlapped the cut-out design) and adhere with craft glue.
4. Place a lit votive on a plate and lower the pumpkin over it.
