Pumpkin Carving Tips

Jack-O-Lanterns Halloween is tomorrow! If you haven't carved this year's pumpkins, tonight is your last chance. Here are a few tips to make that jack-o-lantern truly special and help it last just a little longer:

Pumpkin Preservation

There are many effective ways to preserve your jack-o-lanterns. We recommend the following preservation techniques:
  • Prevent your pumpkin from drying out by placing petroleum jelly on the cut edges of your carving.
  • To help prevent premature decomposition, spray your pumpkin with water, cover it with plastic wrap then store it in the refrigerator when it's not on display.
  • Soak or spray the pumpkin with water mixed with a little bit of bleach. This will help ward off mold and kill insects for a longer preservation.

No matter how great your design is, your masterpiece will only truly shine once the sun goes down. Here are a few tips for lighting up your jack-o-lantern this Halloween:
  • When using a candle, cut a hole on the upper, back part of the pumpkin. The hole will work like a chimney by allowing the candle's heat to escape.
  • Try creating the opening from the bottom of the pumpkin instead of the top - you can attach the light source to the bottom lid and place the pumpkin over it.
  • For a multicolor display, use a battery-operated light with LED bulbs. A flashing light is ideal for spooky pumpkin carvings.
Happy Halloween from Estabrook's!
