We used two burlap coffee bags to make a nest for Ona on Halloween night, so she could greet the neighbourhood trick-or-treaters. We popped off the wings and the back which dropped the weight of the pumpkin low enough that my husband could carry her to her nest. Reassembly was a breeze, the notches allowed us to quickly position the wings and set Ona up.

We tried a few lights inside, but eventually we had to add a camper’s light to make her light up enough so that you could enjoy her Halloween glow.

Ona was a highlight of many a neighbours’ visit!

This is how we carved our 161 lbs, pumpkin. Everyone should do it at least once in their lives . . . it builds character!
