Finally got around to carving our pumpkins. One of the things that we do is to cut our pumpkin from the bottom. It looks better when your creation sit on the porch. We've found that we just like this method. Next, empty out the pumpkin guts...a favorite chore for some and not so fun for others. It's part of the smell of Halloween traditions.
The tools that help to make for easy carving and decorating are these reliable melon ballers. I have a couple different sizes and played around with the size of the circles. It's pretty easy once you take your melon baller, choose a spot, and just go for it. It goes fast, too.
Once it gets dark and you get a candle in there, it looks pretty cool since the Mickey Mouse heads are backlit.
Wishing you lots of treats on this Halloween!
