How to carve a pumpkin

Halloween wouldn’t be the same without the traditional pumpkin lighting up your home, so why not check out our pumpkin carving video for an easy step-by-step guide to creating the perfect Halloween accessory for October 31.

It couldn’t be easier thanks to our video guide, which lists everything you need to carve your pumpkin, and a step-by-step to the finished product.

There’s no right or wrong way to carve a pumpkin, so the sky’s your limit for creativity. We’ve chosen a traditional spooky face for our pumpkin, which can be achieved pretty easily. But if you’re a dab hand at carving, there’s no reason you can’t freestyle with your design and really go to town.

Happy Halloween!
