I had a few old rackets in storage that I picked up at the dump reuse centre a few years ago and have never used them. I decided it was time to clear them out… so turned them into the perfect Fall pumpkins.
To start, I cut off the handles of the rackets so they became pumpkin shaped. I should note that it was much easier to cut off the tennis handle than the badminton handles. If you cut down badminton rackets, be warned that the metal handle goes right to the racket part. It took a few tries but I was finally able to find the end very close down to the oval.
