Start with two white pumpkins (stems removed) and two slightly larger orange pumpkins. Cut hole in back of each orange pumpkin big enough for white pumpkin to fit into. Hollow out orange pumpkins; carve eye shape, then use linoleum cutter to carve lashes. Draw iris and pupil circles on white pumpkins, trace iris outlines with linoleum cutter, and lightly etch lines from outer to inner edge of iris. Paint with diluted green acrylic paint; when dry, use black acrylic paint for pupil. Draw blood vessels around iris with red permanent marker. When dry, insert white pumpkins into orange pumpkins.
