Carving jack-o-lanterns is a favorite Harvest tradition for many families. Here is a simple guide to pumpkin carving for beginners:
Pumpkin (look for smooth, symmetrical ones)
Carving tools (knife, spoon, toothpicks, etc.)
Newspaper or tarp to work on
Marker to draw a face
Candle and matches
Cut a large circle around the stem and scoop out insides
Draw a face design on the front with marker
Use tools to carve out face elements like eyes, nose, and mouth
Put a candle inside and light it to bring your jack-o-lantern to life!
Supervise young kids and have them draw a face instead of carving
Light candles inside pumpkins away from flammable objects
Place jack-o-lanterns on a flat surface and keep away from doorways
Have fun coming up with creative designs – you can find stencils online if you need inspiration!
