Pumpkin Painting/Carving: 

Whichever one you choose be sure to pick a pumpkin with a nice shape to fit your design and make sure there are no blemishes, bumps, or worm holes. If carving cut from the bottom and seal with petroleum jelly and lightly spray the inside with bleach. Also be sure to refridgerate when its not on display to preserve the life of your pumpkin. If you just want to paint you can always jazz it up and add glitter, stickers, and anything else you or your kids may want to add. For more carving tips checkout Pumpkin Masters site and for painting tips check out Michael’s.
