All Stitched Up Jack-o'-Lantern

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Being tossed around by the Headless Horseman can lead to some serious bumps and bruises! A few strips of reflective tape help this petrified pumpkin look a little more pieced together -- and create a cool glow when trick-or-treaters' flashlights or the headlights of passing cars shine on them.


  • 1 large pumpkin
  • Carving tools
  • Scissors
  • White reflective tape


  1. Carve a pumpkin with a mouth resembling stitches.
  2. Cut white reflective tape into thin strips of varying lengths.
  3. Place the strips on the pumpkin as shown.
