Giving your pumpkin polka dots makes for an easy, elegant centerpiece. You can choose to display a single pumpkin as a centerpiece or display pumpkins of varying sizes and at different lines of sight to create an eye pleasing display.

To create this stunning display, hollow out a pumpkin, and use a power drill to drill patterns or random polka dots on your pumpkin. You can also use various sizes of drill bits to create a more complex design. Then place a candle in the pumpkin and you have a gorgeous and unique centerpiece!
