Carve Your Pumpkin With A Melon Baller And A Grapefruit Knife

Introducing the “Hack-O’-Lantern,” the easiest gourd-based decoration you can create this Halloween.

You don’t even need a pumpkin carving kit, since you probably have all the tools in your house already:

  • An ice cream scoop to empty out the insides

  • A grapefruit knife for trimming

  • Wood carving tools or a box cutter to outline details

  • Tracing paper and pushpins to transfer your design

  • A melon baller to create eyeballs

  • A vegetable peeler and lemon zester for texture

Always remember to empty your pumpkin from the bottom, as this will keep it from drooping. Also use battery-operated candles because they are safer and last longer than the fire-based options.
