Give a pumpkin or squash an elegant facelift by carving it with initials or a name.
Here's how: Choose a letter in a font and size of your choice on your computer and print it. Cut out the letter, place on a carved-out pumpkin or gourd, and trace around it with a grease pencil. Remove template and cut out the shape with a serrated carving knife.
