Have you a carved a jack-o-lantern pumpkin for Halloween? If you think that it’s too difficult, this article is for you. Personally, I think that you can carve pumpkin anytime, not only for Halloween. It truly looks beautiful when you light it at night and leave it on your porch or balcony.
This year I carved several pumpkins and have to say that it’s much easier than you may think. You can see our artworks in my video about mindful tips for peaceful Halloween. I found many tutorials on YouTube and Pinterest. And in fact, Pinterest is the source I used the most. I loved the experience because it made me feel creative and at the same time skillful.
If I can give you a tip, choose a small pumpkin. ours had 1,5 kg, it was young and soft and very easy to carve. First, you cut out the top, clean the inside, take a marker pen and make a simple outline of the face. I used a small kitchen knife but you can use a serrated knife to carve the pumpkin.
How do you like to decorate pumpkins? Do you prefer to carve or paint them?
