Carving a Jack 'O Lantern

Use a large spoon to scoop out the seeds.

The rind should be about 1" thick so it doesn't collapse.  

Map out your pumpkin face on a piece of paper ahead of time for some ideas. 

Draw the lines for your lid before carving. Make a special "notch" so the lid is easy to put on.

When using a stencil, pick a pumpkin that is similar in shape to the pattern you are using.   

Use a knife long enough to cut through the rind, but not so long that it cuts the other side.   

When you carve out the lid, angle your knife slightly towards the center of the pumpkin. This keeps the lid from falling into the pumpkin.   

If the base of your pumpkin sets crooked, consider cutting out the bottom to straighten it out and provide a sturdy base for a candle when you set it down.  

Draw the facial features on the pumpkin ahead of time with a pencil or use a stencil pattern specifically for jack-o-lanterns.   

Don't cut out the features on your jack-o-lantern too closely together or it's face will probably weaken and cave in.   

Your pumpkin will last longer if you use an electric or battery operated lighting device instead of a candle.   

If you choose to use a candle, insert an appropriate scented one -- such as cinnamon, spice or "baked pumpkin pie."   

Coat the edges of your carving with petroleum jelly to reduce shriveling.  

You don't have to carve your pumpkin. Consider using a stencil to draw on the face. Fill in the features with markers or acrylic paint made for crafts.

I should have named you Sunshine
Right from the very start,
Your Smile a magnet and your heart of gold
How special from the day you were born.
No one could be so lucky to have a baby boy like you!
