My "S" pumpkins. I cut hole in bottom and cleaned and scrapped pumpkin out. I made an "S"pattern on paper and pinned it to pumpkin. I used a drill and drilled holes about 2" apart along pattern. Moved pattern around pumpkin. Used a 150 Christmas Light Strand and pushed a light through each hole. Plugged into timer and had a beautiful centerpiece for my table on my front porch.
