This pumpkin carving tip is so awesome and simple, you’re going to ask yourself why you didn’t think of it before now.
When you carve your pumpkin, do you cut out the top of the pumpkin to get to the guts? I think most people do, and it’s how I always did it until I figures a few years ago, but not anymore!
A few years ago I tried something different, and I think it really is the best pumpkin carving tip ever!
I cut out the BOTTOM of the pumpkin! It makes things so much easier when it comes time to light up your jack-o-lantern! No more wrestling to get a lit candle down into the bottom of the pumpkin or struggling to light a candle that you’ve already placed inside!
I’m not even sure if this was originally my brilliant discovery or if my hubby came up with it, but I’ve never seen this anywhere else, so I’m thinking we might have actually INVENTED this idea! Aren’t we clever?
Simply cut a hole in the bottom of your pumpkin, and scoop the guts out like you normally would.
What do you think? Makes things a little easier, doesn’t it?
