Duct Tape and Pumpkins!

My oldest daughter lives in the big city of Columbus,
She is a city-slicker!

So I wanted to make her a dignified pumpkin...
You can have carved pumpkins.....
Painted pumpkins.....
and.... glittered pumpkins

But she needed something... hmmm... city-fied!
So of course, I picked out duct tape (for my dignified pumpkin)....
and a matching duct sheet.
I cut out a letter C, for her name, and outlined it with a black sharpie.
Then, I made my strip of duct tape narrower
 and placed it around the bottom of the pumpkin.
Next, I  put on the letter C,
And made a black and orange bow to put on top.
Now, my city slicker child has a pumpkin worthy of Columbus.
There are soooo many different things that can be done to pumpkins.
I want to try drilling the holes in one so the candle light shines out.
What are some of your thoughts?
Let me know what you have tried.
