Princess Leia pumpkin idea for last-minute carvers


Looking for a last-minute pumpkin carving idea? Curbly has a good Princess Leia jack-o-lantern design that doesn’t look all that difficult to pull off.

The famous hair buns are actually two mini pumpkins that can be held in place with toothpicks or, if you’re feeling ambitious, two 3-inch pieces of quarter-inch doweling and some pretty straightforward cranial drilling. Slap on some acrylic paint, use a dishtowel to simulate the Princess’ gown, and, boom, intergalactic pumpkin.
