It's only about a week away from Halloween, and you might be planning on carving a pumpkin soon. Here are some great tips about how to carve a perfect pumpkin and keep it looking good all the way through Halloween.

Tip #1:

Carve out the bottom of the pumpkin

This tip will make it much easier for you to place a candle inside the carved pumpkin — you won't burn your hand! It also will keep your pumpkin from falling into itself.

Tip #2:

Use battery-powered candles

This will make lighting your carved pumpkin so much easier than using real candles with flames. All you need to do is flip a switch on the bottom of the candle and place it inside the carved pumpkin. How easy is that?!

Tip #3:

Use Vaseline

To give your carved pumpkin a sheen, rub a good amount of Vaseline over the pumpkin after you are finished carving it. This will help preserve your pumpkin and keep it looking good through Halloween.

Enjoy carving pumpkins and remember to have fun!
