Head On Fire Pattern

Head On Fire Pattern
Rather than carving a pumpkin with a lid on it, this one is carved with a flame patterned top ridge.

You can extend the top of this pattern all the way around the pumkin.

Finished it off with a pie plate full of lighter fluid or lamp oil and let her rip. This one is designed to burn.

The gray areas represent where you cut away the orange skin but leave some flesh. The black is cut away completely.

When I am not carving pumpkins, I run a bulletproof vest company. BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests are the value leader in body armor. We are very popular with people like armored car operators and ATM repairmen.
