Tips for Carving the Perfect Pumpkin

- Make sure you choose a pumpkin that is the right size for the design. Roughly 25cm – 30cm wide is ideal.
- Pumpkins with a lighter colour tend to be much softer and easier to carve.
Make sure you cut the lid at an angle so it doesn’t drop back into the pumpkin when you replace it.
When carving this design start from the inside out, or work side to side.
Don’t rush! Rushing could lead to mistakes when carving.
- Rub petroleum jelly onto the cut edges to keep your pumpkin fresh for longer.
