I learned some great steps and tips on how to carve a pumpkin!
A pumpkin gets its nutrients from the stem! Find a pumpkin with a really healthy looking stem if your pumpkin to last longer!
Storing your pumpkin the refrigerator will also help preserve it.
Don’t cut your pumpkin from the top near the stem because you lose the nutrients!
Find your favorite Halloween Pumpkin Stencil, some graphite paper, and a pen.
Use pushpins to hold your stencil with the graphite paper underneath to trade your stencil! Use the black marker to trace around the main edges and color the black parts. Then clean off your pumpkin with some disinfectant wipes.
Trace around the edges using the linoleum cutter to create a thin trade this will allow your light to illuminate through the pumpkin.
Create your design using paint, carving parts of the pumpkin, linoleum cutting and ribbon cutter tool for thin carving.
