How to Carve the Best Pumpkin This Halloween

Good gourd! Halloween is lurking just around the corner and your pumpkin needs to be carved. This is where The Pig comes in.

Use our free Pumpkin Pig Face template below on your pumpkin! And, share with us on social media using the hashtag #LoveThePig.

But first, here are some tips from All About Pumpkins to pump you up for picking the perfect Jack O’ Lantern:

  • Choose a pumpkin that feels firm and heavy for its size.
  • Choose a pumpkin that has consistent coloring throughout.
  • Turn the pumpkin over and place pressure on the bottom with your thumbs. If it flexes or gives your pumpkin is not fresh.
  • Look for soft spots, mold, wrinkles or open cuts that would indicate damage or early spoilage.
  • Choose a pumpkin with a solidly attached stem.
  • A green stem indicates a freshly harvested pumpkin.
  • Place your pumpkin on a flat surface to check to see if it will sit flat after being carved.
