Tired of the same humdrum pumpkin carving routine year after year? Growing weary of identical jack-o-lanterns up and down your street? Here’s a techy, glowy fix that won’t catch fire, unless you consider the droves of fans at your doorstep too hot to handle.
Today we’re making an electroluminescent jack-o-lantern with EL Wire. I call it….the Jack-EL-Lantern. Trademark, please?
Kids and parents alike will love this project. Caution: the knife and drill should only be handled by an adult for maximum safety.
For us crafty folk and kin, this project is also a reason to dust off the drill for those of us who are novice tool users. Grab that drill, a pumpkin, and any length of EL Wire for this project. I recommend a length of 25 feet, sold at Makershed.com, to do a large face on a full-size pumpkin.
