Hassle Free Way to Carve a Pumpkin

October is here and it’s time to carve those pumpkins!  This is something that I always look forward to doing, but usually fail at doing.  I get all these cool designs together and start working on carving my pumpkin out only to step back and see that my pumpkin looks like a mess.  My lines aren’t connecting and my design just happened to get 5 times bigger then the stencil.  I usually get too frustrated to finish it and end up putting uncarved pumpkins on my porch.  Now that’s no fun!  But I ran across this article online and I think its genius!  Take a look at this hassle free way to carve a pumpkin!

*Make sure you cut a circle around the pumpkin stem and lift off the lid to remove the seeds from the inside of the pumpkin.

*Find some cookie cutters that you want to use for your design.

*Place your cookie cutter on the pumpkin and tap firmly with a rubber mallet until most of the cookie cutter is in the pumpkin shell.

*Remove the cookie cutter, using needle-nose pliers if needed.

*With a small serrated knife finish cutting out the shape from the cookie cutter, making sure to cut all the way through the rest of the pumpkin shell.

*Take out the shape you just cut out.

*Add a candle inside of the pumpkin.

This process seems a little less frustrating and I think I am going to have to try it out this year!
