How to Carve a Pumpkin

How To Carve a Pumpkin

Happy Halloween, folks! It's the season of tricks, treats and everything pumpkin. These orange cousins of a melon make creative and fun decorations during this most festive season. Carving a pumpkin is a staple Halloween activity! If you're inexperienced, or just not that skilled at carving pumpkins then let us walk you through our fool-proof way of how to carve a pumpkin. It's simple and anyone can do it! You just need a little creativity. Why not make a party out of it? All you need for your Carve Party is friends, food, a few supplies (don't forget to mention it's B.Y.O.P) and we'll handle the rest!

Check out our video and tips on how to carve a pumpkin. Once you learn how easy it is you're house will be decked out for the trick-or-treaters!

  1. Choose a nice big pumpkin. Make sure it is a carving pumpkin and not for eating. Wipe the pumpkin with a wet cloth to remove all that pumpkin patch dirt and make sure to dry it off!
  2. Draw on a creative face! Use a permanent marker to draw whatever face you'd like. Whether scary or funny make sure it's all positioned correctly!
  3. Cut off the top. Make sure to cut at an angle so the top sits on the pumpkin like a lid. Cut the stringy parts off the top's underside.
  4. Scrap out the insides! Use a spoon or store-bought scooper to remove all the gooey insides and seeds. This is the most fun part! Save the seeds to roast later.
  5. Cut out the face. A serrated knife is safest and works best to help you follow along your drawn lines. Be careful no to cut yourself!
  6. Light a small candle and place it inside. Prepare to be scared!
