I thought I would share some of my favorite pumpkin carving webites and some tips.
Pumpkin Carving Tips:
Look for pumpkin carving pattern books and tools on clearance after Halloween. Stock up for the next year.
If you decide to draw your design on the pumpkin use a water-based marker. Mistakes are erased easily with a damp sponge.
Scoop out seeds and stringy flesh with a large spoon, ice cream scooper, or scooping tool.
If you open your pumpkin from the bottom, it makes it easier to sit over a candle or other light source.
To prolong the life of the jack-o'-lantern, seal in moisture by coating all cut surfaces with petroleum jelly or vegetable oil, or cover it with a damp towel when not on display.
