Pumpkin carving is a tradition in our house. We have been going to a local pumpkin patch (actually it is just down the street from my house) and getting pumpkins to carve for about 10 years. It is a great family tradition and one I will miss when my kids are grown.
Pumpkins mean fall for me and I love that I can indulge in pumpkins just one season of the year.
Today I would like to discuss pumpkin carving and decorating your pumpkins for Halloween.
These days there are two main ideas when it comes to pumpkin decorating: Carving out the inside of the pumpkin or decorating the outside. Whichever you prefer, we’ve got you covered.
We also have a FREE list of Top 10 Websites to Get Free Pumpkin Carving Patterns to get your carving party started this year!
