Traditional Jack-O-Lantern Carving. Begin by carving the lid. This would be the immediate area around the stem. Use the long knife to cut a pentagon or a hexagon (most workable shape) around the stem. As you cut into the top of the pumpkin, make your cuts angle towards each other beneath the stem. In effect, you'll be cutting a cone shaped chunk out of the top of the pumpkin. This will prevent the lid from falling in. Make sure that it is big enough for part of your forearm to easily pass through when you to gut the pumpkin with a spoon. Remove the lid. Go on and get in there with your gutting spoon and scrape all of the soft flesh out. Do a thorough job.
Another element adding to the "old world charm" of New Orleans gas lanterns is the use of traditional materials such as copper. Copper is historically the material of choice for an outdoor gas lantern. It is a tough, durable metal that can withstand the natural elements and ages gracefully the longer it is left outdoors.
Ensure that the operating voltage of your plug in hanging lamp is in the recommended range. Very high voltages will overdrive your lighting system. Although it provides more brightness, it actually shortens the lamp's lifespan overall. Going overboard by even 1 volt can reduce the lifespan of your hanging ceiling lamp by half.
