Want to find out how to carve like a pro? Here are ALDI’s top tips on how to create the perfect pumpkin.

  1. Trace Your Design: Before you start carving, use a pencil to trace your chosen design onto the pumpkin's surface. This will serve as a guideline for your masterpiece!
  1. Start from the Bottom: Instead of cutting off the top of the pumpkin to remove the lid, try cutting a hole in the bottom. This way, you can easily place the pumpkin over a candle or LED light for a boo-tiful decoration.
  1. Preserve with Petroleum Jelly: After carving your pumpkin, coat the cut edges with a thin layer of petroleum jelly. This helps slow down the drying process and keeps your pumpkin looking fresh for longer.
