-Set your pumpkin carving duty in a space you don’t mind getting messy, ideally, outdoors.
-Line your work surface with something you’ll throw away later old newspapers or flattened brown paper grocery bags work well.
-Gather your tools, a pumpkin carving kit from your local drugstore, supermarket, or Halloween pop-up shop will work fine. However, you can also use tools from your kitchen.
-Before you start, make sure you have everything you need ready and at hand. Bowls, markers and carving tools
-With a pen or marker draw your design onto the pumpkin. After you’ve determined the best side of your pumpkin for a face, use a permanent marker to sketch out eyes, a nose, and a toothy grin. Outline a circular lid around the pumpkin stem, about 5 to 6 inches in diameter and add a notch in the back if you like.
-With a slim pumpkin carving knife or serrated knife, cut along the outline of your pumpkin lid. Make sure you slice through the pumpkin at a 45-degree inward angle, so you’ll be able to replace the lid without it falling in.
-Remove the pumpkin seeds and instead of throwing away the seeds, save them. You can roast them with oil and salt for a delicious snack. Grab the big bunches of seeds with your hands and place them in one of the bowls.
-Scoop out the insides of the pumpkin using a ladle or the scraper that came with your kit to clean out the inside of the pumpkin until no stringy bits remain. Discard the pumpkin guts in the second bowl.
-Wipe off the outside of the pumpkin so that it will be easier and safer to carve, then cut out the design.
-Clean up the details, removing any stringy pieces or jagged lines with a small knife or the wire tool from your carving kit. You can also scrape off the marker lines while you’re at it.
-Put a tea light candle in the bottom of your pumpkin and light the pumpkin and replace the lid. Voilá! Your Jack-o-Lantern is done.
