What you need
What to do
- First, you have to get yourself some pumpkins of course! Every year I always go out to pumpkin patches to get my own pumpkin to not only have on my front porch but to carve as well. It’s fun to make a day out of it, bring your family, your significant other or simply a best friend and have a great time picking out the best pumpkins and laughing at the worst ones.
- After you have your pumpkin you can take the next step of carving or you can simply have the orange vegetable sitting at your door step. Make sure that you have a pumpkin carving kit with stencils and all the tools you need.
- After you have your finished pumpkin you should have the pumpkin sitting on top of a small dish that you don’t necessarily care about so in case if the pumpkin starts going bad you don’t want it sitting on your door step like that. We suggest something like a tray that you normally put under a potted plant that normally catches water. Place in your tea light and you have the best pumpkin around town.
- Another fun idea other than carving the pumpkin is simply engraving the outside of it. Take a permanent marker and using a similar stencil that you had and write in your initials or someone else’s initials and you have a classy looking festive addition to your decorations.
Those are our ideas for making sure that you’re completely set for the year’s spookiest holidays. What’s your favorite part of Halloween? Let us know in the comments below!
