Suspend a trio of these haunted heads from the front porch. First, use pumpkin carving tools to create a gaping mouth, nose and teeth in an upside-down butternut squash, then secure radish eyes with toothpicks. With highlighter, draw tall rectangle mouth, teeth and smile lines on butternut squash. Carve mouth and lines, then etch skin off teeth with linoleum cutter. Hollow out inside of mouth only. Carve upside-down heart for nose. Cut eye sockets with top of knife tilted toward the pumpkin. Slice an end off 2 radishes and push in black beans for pupils, then add 2 toothpicks to back of each and push into sockets. Poke deep hole in either side of squash at top with an awl. Tape a length of monofilament to wood skewer and thread through holes; discard skewer. Knot ends of monofilament together; use loop to hang.
