Modernized Pumpkin Carving!

Spice up your pumpkin carving skills with a drill.  You don’t have to worry about handling carving knives. You can just use different sizes of drill bits for all sorts of designs.  You won’t have to be limited to the standard jack-o-lantern face. Make your magical fall nights twinkle.  It is a very simple process.

First you need your pumpkins. You can buy these at your local Rural King.

Secondly, you would need to carve a large circular opening into the bottom of your pumpkin. Clean out the inside thoroughly, scooping away the pulp and seeds with a spoon.

Next, make a rough design on paper first, then mark the dots on the pumpkin with a permanent marker (which can be found at your local Rural King or RuralKing.com) Try a swirling or geometric design, or randomly space dots on the pumpkin shell.

You would then need to drill holes using a drill. You can use difference size drill bits for different sizes of holes. Rural King sells several different types of drills.  This would be a great excuses for revamping your tool collection. Check out all the drills Rural King has to offer by clicking here. :)

The last step required is just to fill the pumpkin with some type of lights. You can use candles or even get an extra use out of your old Christmas string lights.

Once you have your pumpkin all set up, just put it out for the world to see just how creative you are.

Save Space and Have Fun Doing It

Are small paperclips, screws and other small items constantly in the way? Need a better organizational system but can’t seem to find one? You don’t have to suffer with discord in your home when you could create a special organizational system that involves storing your items in small jars that can be housed underneath your cabinets.

1. Locate an area in your home for your space saver set. Consider setting up your space saving jars in a laundry room or even the garage cabinets. You will be permanently adding this set to a cabinet so make sure you don’t damage expensive or new cabinetry.

  • Find a well-traveled area or an area that is easy to access.
  • Make sure the cabinets can support several mounted jars underneath. If the cabinets are damaged or have poor support, consider using a different cabinet.

2. Separate lids from each jar. You will be affixing the lids to the wooden block.

3.  Line wooden block with lids. Before you make it permanent, map out where each lid will go on the block. Make sure you have enough room to screw and unscrew each jar once the lids and system is put in place.

  • Trace each lid in the place so you can keep your map in place once you begin to glue the lids.

4.  Glue lids onto block. Add several dollops of glue to the top of the lid and then hold in place on wooden block.

  • Allow several hours or overnight to dry. While the glue will most likely hold in place within minutes but you will want to wait in order to ensure the lids don’t come unglued.

5.  Mount wooden block underneath the cabinet. Slather wood or industrial strength glue on the back of the wooden block. Working quickly affix the wooden block underneath the cabinet and hold in place.

  • You may need to hold block in place for several minutes to ensure it remains in place.
  • Consider purchasing or picking up a few wooden blocks that measure the width between your cabinet bottom and the countertop. Slide those blocks in place to hold the glued block in place and provide a lengthy dry time.

6.  Fill jars with items and screw in place. Once wooden block has completely dried, remove supports and use jar system as needed.
