A Festive Party Cooler!

Looking for a festive way to keep your drinks cold at your next Harvest-inspired party?  Check out this super cute pumpkin beverage cooler from!  I can just picture it with some beautiful leaf etchings like those seen HERE.  Want the skinny on how to make your own festive pumpkin party cooler?  Here you go:

You don't need a fairy godmother to turn a pumpkin into an ice bucket. Just choose a large, wide pumpkin, cut off the top third with a serrated knife or keyhole saw, and scrape out the pulp and seeds. Line the gourd with a glass or plastic bowl to prevent it from becoming water-logged. If the pumpkin opening is a bit too small for the bowl, carefully shave the inside edge with a spoon. Finish by filling the bowl with ice and bottled drinks.
