How to carve pumpkins

After you scoop out and carve your pumpkin, dip it in a large container of bleach and water (use a 1 tsp:1 gal mix). The bleach will kill bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer. Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add 2 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water. Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.

Pumpkin decorating is such a big part of Halloween, but if you want your pumpkin décor to stay relevant for the rest of fall, your best bet is to avoid the classic Jack and instead go for one of these no-carve ideas. Not only are the designs timeless, but not cutting up the pumpkin will also mean more time to enjoy it! Pick a theme that the kids will love, like Mickey Mouse, or Frozen, get out your paint and crafting supplies, and then go over to eBay for more no-carve pumpkin ideas.
