Pumpkin Carving Tipspumpkin carving

Halloween is definitely one of our favorite holidays, even if the day time temperature still hovers around 90 degrees!

If the Nation’s scariest haunt, Fright Dome is still a bit too much for you, there is no better way to get you in the mood to celebrate Fall than grabbing your PSL and taking a trip to the local pumpkin patch, picking up a few pumpkins, and carving them into amazing creations with your friends and family!

Perhaps you are not a Pinterest extraordinaire and have not always had success in your past attempts….

…Don’t Be afraid!

Check out these sure fire tips to get you started into pumpkin carving perfection:

  • Cut the lid at an angel so the top does not fall in
  • Use a metal spoon or an ice-cream scoop for removing the guts
  • A dry erase marker is great for drawing the design because if you don’t like your work, you can erase it
  • Make indentations with the screwdriver before cutting all the way through with a knife
  • A long serrated knife or a pumpkin-carving kit knife with teeth will be necessary to cut through the thick flesh
  • Use a sawing motion and take your time cutting along the outside edge of your drawing
  • Use a potato peeler for making smalls circles and curves
  • Rub the inside and outside , including all cut edges, with vegetable oil or petroleum jelly to prevent shriveling
