Halloween hack: Cut the jack-o'-lantern hole in the bottom of the pumpkin
Give Rob a pat on the back for this brilliant pumpkin-carving hack! So smart.
We learned a couple of years ago what we think is the best idea for carving a pumpkin: cut the hole from the bottom not the top. If you cut a hole in the bottom it serves several purposes:
- you can cut at an angle to help the pumpkin stay straight (if you have an odd shaped pumpkin).
- you can put the candle on the bottom without risking burning your fingers as you light it from above!
It helped us a great deal, and we have converted quite a few people at carving parties the last couple of years!
