How do I carve a pumpkin?
*You will need two knifes (serrated & one smaller than the other) a large spoon and a metal skewer.
Use the large knife to cut a hole at the top of the pumpkin Scoop out all of the flesh using the spoon Draw your design onto the front of the pumpkin using the skewer Carve the design using the small serrated knife Remove the cut out pumpkin and neaten the edges Light your pumpkin with a tea light.
