    1. Boil the eggs in water for about 11 minutes, then drain and place in ice water until they are completely cool. Peel them under cool running water.
    2. Slice them lengthwise in half and spoon out the yolk. Cover the egg whites and refrigerate.
    3. Add the yolk, mayonnaise, mustard, paprika, and peppers in a food processor and blend lightly. You can also mix manually using a fork. Add salt and pepper as per taste.
    4. Put the yolk mixture in a Ziploc bag and snip off any one corner. Pipe out 4-5 lines in the middle of the egg lengthwise, so as to create 'ridges' that resemble a pumpkin. Use a small part of the chive to make the 'stem' of the pumpkin.
    5. Alternatively, pipe out the yolk on the egg as you'd like, and place a 'spider' on it. Cut a pitted black olive into two. Use one part to create the body of the spider and slice the second part to create its legs, as shown in the picture
