There are so many different ways to carve a Halloween pumpkin, it really is difficult to choose one sometimes. Many people will go with a typical face, one that they can carve easily and it is somewhat of a no-brainer. Others may get more creative, especially if they have the ability and the artistic skill. You would be surprised with what some people are able to do.
If you’re looking for an interesting idea for your Halloween pumpkin, this one should not be overlooked. Instead of carving a face into the gourd, simply hollow it out and take a small screwdriver or drill and drill multiple tiny holes all over it. When you put a light on the inside, it is going to look like a glowing disco ball! The effect really is quite stunning.
Did you know that jack-o’-lanterns were originally carved from potatoes, beets or turnips? They were used in Scotland and Ireland and put out on porches to scare away wondering evil spirits or “Stingy Jack” it has only been in more recent years that pumpkins were used for jack-o’-lanterns.
