Creative ideas for the Pumpkin carving

Pumpkin carving

Why and how to make a pumpkin for Halloween?

Every year, you surely have the habit of hollowing out a pumpkin and then placing a candle in it on Halloween night. But do you know where this tradition comes from? Originally, October 31 was a holiday when the Irish celebrated the god of death before the start of the new year, November 1. It is said that the deceased returned to Earth on this occasion. To guide them, the inhabitants made DIY lanterns with seasonal vegetables, such as turnips. When the Irish emigrated to the United States, they traded the turnip for the more common pumpkin. Today, we continue to perpetuate this tradition, no longer for spiritual reasons but for decorative or culinary reasons. Indeed, it’s a good opportunity to test Halloween recipes at home by choosing a famous horror movie.

Pumpkin carving is one of the must-do activities in October. Here are some original ideas to surprise your visitors.

To make the traditional “Jack O’Lantern” pumpkin

Steps :

  1. – With a sharp knife, remove the “cap” from the pumpkin. Scrape the inside to remove everything it contains.
  2. – Once the pumpkin is empty, draw Jack’s face on the pumpkin with a marker. This drawing will serve as a guide for a proper sculpture.
  3. – Make triangles for the eyes and a small triangle for the nose. The traditional pumpkin lantern depicts a smiling face and an open, toothless mouth.
  4. – Use your knife to cut out pieces of the pumpkin following your guide drawing.

If you want to change your style, you can opt for shapes (squares, triangles, hearts, stars, etc.). Carried out perfectly, the sculpture can give something original and different.



You can send messages through pumpkin lanterns. Instead of carving patterns, shapes, or a face, carve letters. Again, the choice of message is yours. Here’s a simple message idea: carve a B on one pumpkin, an O on another, and an O on another. Lay them side by side to form the word “Boo”, a favorite expression of ghosts.
