Pumpkin carving for easy candle access

Have you ever burned your hand trying to get a candle in or out of a jack-o'-lantern? Try cutting your pumpkin 'lid' a little differently.

Materials:

  • pumpkin
  • carving knife

Instructions:
  • Prep the pumpkin for carving.

  • Mark where you're going to cut the 'lid.' The front (shown as top of the photo) will be a semi-circle, while the back will extend all the way down the back of the pumpkin.

  • Using your favourite method, clean out and carve the pumpkin.

  • Now you're able to put a candle in through the back of the pumpkin, with much less risk of getting burned!
