Halloween 'Pumpkin' Table Decoration

I have to share this, now. I carved a Orange Pepper for the Tapas Halloween Party for tonight.
I'm not hosting it this month, so I had time to play around a little.

I got a case of Orange Peppers last week, and processed most of them, but saved a few out for tonight.

I'm putting some Roasted Pepper Hummus in one of them, but I also carved one of them up and put a flameless candle inside.

To start with, I took the top off of one of the peppers using a sharp knife.  Next up, I removed the seeds and membrane from inside.   Checked to see if the candle would fit and then...

Third, I drew a rough picture of the parts I wanted to cut out of the pepper, and proceeded to carve them out.

After I got all that done, I put a flameless candle in that I'd saved from previous Halloweens, and tried to find a dark spot so I could see how cool the 'pumpkin pepper' would look.

I think I nailed this one.
