Crafting your Halloween pumpkins should be first and foremost a fun activity for the whole family, and not a source of stress and frustration. When you’re choosing what to do with your pumpkins this year, try to involved the whole family and pick some ideas together.
If you plan to display more pumpkins for example on your porch, having a unifying theme to the design will make the whole display look more cohesive. You can for example choose to go for bats instead of the traditional scary faces, or adopt a spider theme which can then continue inside the house too.
Don’t be scared to experiment and add a bit of color too – you can paint your pumpkins white or black before you start carving, to create something more unique and fitting with the rest of your decor.
