Pumpkin Carving Tips

Yes, Halloween is right around the corner! And people are preparing to carve up some hauntingly good pumpkin creations to share on their social media. This article from Good Housekeeping shares some great tips on making your pumpkin carving experience safe and enjoyable!

  • The right pumpkin is important. Find a fresh one with a flat bottom & sturdy stem.
  • Cut the lid on an angle to prevent it from sliding inside the pumpkin.
  • Scrape all the innards out of the pumpkin & thin the walls to 1 1/4″ thick for easier carving.
  • Hold the pumpkin in your lap as carving faces/shapes are easier when you are looking down at the pumpkin.
  • Use scraps creatively by making accessories or facial features from them and attaching them to your pumpkin.
