Spell out a spooky message with four odd-sized pumpkins.
First, use the marker to draw the letters and exclamation point on the pumpkins.
Cut the tops off with a sharp knife (parents only); for best results, carve at an inward angle. Make a small hole in each cap to allow heat from the candle to escape.
Remove the seeds with an ice-cream scoop and scrape the walls until they are about 1 inch thick.
Cut out the drawn letters with a paring knife or pumpkin-carving tool, then light a candle in each one.
