Carve the Perfect Pumpkin


Ensure your pumpkin is ripe – when tapped it should have a hollow sound – and buy no more than a week before Halloween.



Draw your design on the pumpkin.



Cut the lid off the pumpkin approx. 2 inches from the stem and save for later. Cut a slice from the base if the pumpkin isn't steady.



Hollow out the pumpkin using a large spoon.



Carve out your design using a sharp knife.



Place a tealight or two in the base and light – if the holes left by your design are large enough to let sufficient oxygen through to keep the candle lit, the lid can be placed back on, or alternatively use a LED Tealight.
