Learn How to Carve the Best Pumpkin for Halloween

pumpkin carving

Halloween is just around the corner and everyone is getting ready for festivals, parties and just a way to have fun with the kids. While carving pumpkins isn’t hard it can be a little challenging if you’ve never done it before. Here are a few tips I found interesting and informative.

I would have never thought about carving a pumpkin from the bottom; every pumpkin I’ve seen has been opened from the top. However, they sit better and it’s easier to clean them out and place them over a candle if you carve from the bottom.

Choosing a pumpkin is also important. You want one that will last for a while, so find one that is young and has a firm stem attached. If it has a little green around the top, even better.

Lastly, you can use power tools! If you don’t already have these on hand you can buy the small inexpensive kits at the store, which actually work best for detail.

I’ve included a couple of videos. One will help walk you through the carving process while the other will give you something to aspire to! Maybe one day we will be as good as the guy in the last video!
