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.
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.
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?!
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.
