Creative Carving

Don't forget to save the seeds for a yummy roasted snack.

  • Choose a pumpkin that best suits the face you intend to carve into it - tall and skinny for a scary Frankenstein, short and fat for a friendly fellow. Remember: there's no need to find a flawless pumpkin. Bumps, growths and discolouration can make great noses, warts and freckles.
  • Don't overlook gourds, squash and even watermelon. They can also make fun jack-o'-lanterns, and you can create a whole family using different types.
  • Cut a large round piece out of the bottom of the pumpkin instead of at the stem, so it sits evenly and can easily be set over a candle.
  • To make your pumpkin last, wash the insides with a mild bleach solution (to slow decay) and coat the cut edges with petroleum jelly.
  • Don't forget to save the seeds for a yummy roasted snack.
