six Spray paint a pumpkin. Not only will metallic spray paint transform the familiar bright orange into an unexpected dazzling sight, but it will also keep squirrels from nibbling away at your pumpkin for at least a few days. seven eight Turn a pumpkin into potpourri. Leave it to Martha Stewart to come up with a way to make a pumpkin incense burner that fills a room with the scent of a freshly baked pumpkin pie for about six hours. Search on MarthaStewart.com for how to do it. Whip up a pumpkin spa-treatment mask. After all the candy and late-night excitement, a little pampering could be the final pumpkin refrain. Pumpkin is high in skin-healing vitamin A and anti- oxidant vitamin C. Simply puree some pumpkin and combine it with whipping cream or brown sugar if your skin is dry, or apple cider or cranberry juice if your skin is oily. Smooth the mixture over your face, relax, rinse, and refresh. nine ten Turn a pumpkin into a vase. Carve out the flesh of a pumpkin and insert a plastic container. Fill the container with water and your favorite fall flowers. Consider a white-skinned pumpkin to show off yellow- and orange-hued blooms. Host a pumpkin-chucking competition. So now the time has come to get rid of your pumpkins. Here is a novel approach. Invite a group of friends over, create teams, and challenge each to build a device – such as a catapult, sling- shot, or air cannon – to heave a pumpkin as far as possible. Watch the World Championship Punkin Chunkin (WCPC) contest on the Science Channel for inspiration. The annual competition is held in Delaware the first full weekend after Halloween and raises money for scholarships and organiza- tions that benefit youth.
