Pumpkins kept indoors don’t last very long and will mold easily. So if you get one this weekend, don’t leave it inside. Keep it in the garage or basement.
A carved pumpkin only lasts 3 days, so wait until at least Tuesday before you do your carving.
To get a cool template, you can look online for stencils or use pages from kid’s colouring books.
You don't need to spend tons of $$ on fancy tools, just a dollar store chisel and curved blade.
Once you have it carved, keep the lid of the pumpkin on a tilt, to allow it to breathe.
Instead of tea candles, try light bulbs. Just pop in a small light bulb, like Christmas lights, from a hole in the backside of the pumpkin. It’s safe, looks amazing in the dark, and won’t scorch the inside of the pumpkin.
