Pumpkin Carving Tips:

1. Choose a pumpkin with a stem and a flat bottom so it doesn’t roll when you’re carving it
2. Cut the lid out at an angle, so it doesn’t fall in when you put it back on.
3. Trace your design on the flattest face before carving.
5. Curved edges are easier to carve with a small saw rather than a carving knife.
6. After carving it, sprinkle cinnamon inside it so it smells like pumpkin pie when you light it!
