Tips for Carving the Perfect Jack-o-Lantern

Pumpkin-Carving TipsOne of the greatest joys of the Halloween season is going to the local pumpkin patch with the family and choosing pumpkins to carve. With Halloween just around the corner, there is no better time than now to make the perfect jack-o-lantern for your entryway. Gathered is some important pumpkin carving tips to make an awesome jack-o-lantern without losing any digits:

  • Start by determining if you will cut the stem of the pumpkin out or the base. We recommend starting from the base, as it will provide you with ease throughout the entire process. It will not only be easier to empty the seeds of the pumpkin, but it will also make illuminating the pumpkin much simpler. Make sure to cut the bottoms off for any participating children.
  • We recommend using an ice cream scooper to get out the seeds in a quick and efficient manner.
  • When it comes to the details of your pumpkin, you have the freedom to choose whichever carving tool you prefer. Many individuals like using the small knifes found in pumpkin-carving kits or paring knives.
  • Once you have made the perfect jack-o-lantern, you must preserve it so that its spooky face is not the only thing scaring off trick or treaters. You can prevent mold growth and dehydration by simply lining in carved areas of the pumpkin with petroleum jelly.
  • Another great way to preserve your pumpkin is by mixing bleach and water together and using a spray bottle to coat the pumpkin with the protective mixture.
  • When it comes to illuminating your pumpkin, it is strongly encouraged that you steer clear of using real candles. We suggest using LED battery-operated tea lights for safety reasons.
