Some additional tips for Carving the Halloween Pumpkin

  • When it comes to picking a pumpkin, the bigger it is, the better.
  • Carve a circle shape out of the top of your pumpkin (if it’s easier, draw the circle before you carve it out).
  • Scoop out the centre and pop in a Tupperware box – you never know when you might fancy some pumpkin soup.
  • Draw a face onto the outside of your pumpkin. Triangle shaped eyes always work well. Don’t be too precise, they’re meant to look scary not polished.
  • Carve along the lines you’ve drawn so that the eyes, nose and mouth have been removed.
  • Pop in a candle and you’re good to go.
  • Having a Halloween party? Keep a pumpkin spare to use as an ice bucket.
