Fall is right around the corner! Pumpkin carving is a fun Halloween activity that can be easier than you think. Follow these tips for great results:

  • Before buying, think about how you want to decorate. More elaborate carving designs should be reserved for larger pumpkins, while simpler patterns can be done on smaller ones.
  • For basic carving, all you need are two sharp knives: a long, thin bladed boning knife to cut larger pieces and a thin bladed knife for smaller details.
  • You can probably make the traditional “jack-o-lantern face” freehand but try a stencil for more complex creations.
  • Experiment with traditional candles, battery powered lights, and even glow sticks to find the right lighting for your carved creation.
