Pumpkins Decorating and Carving Ideas | Happy Halloween 2020

History of Pumpkin on Halloween

The tradition of the Halloween pumpkin goes back to the Irish story of Jack Oldfield, who did nothing but evil during his lifetime. He is said to have cheated on the devil and made him promise not to desire his soul after death. When Jack died, he found neither a place in heaven nor a place in hell because of his evil deeds. The devil finally had mercy and gave Jack a spark with which the villain could wander around in the darkness between heaven and hell. This spark was in a hollowed-out turnip – Jack O’Lanterns – which was later replaced by a pumpkin. The different shades of orange in our colours of the week are particularly reminiscent of the lovingly carved pumpkins in the front gardens and go well with almost every costume.

so, from that time, we celebrate this as a festival and wish each other Happy Halloween by sending Greetings and quotes

Easy Pumpkin Carving Ideas

With pumpkin, you can not only cook delicious recipes but also use them to decorate your apartment, balcony, house, and garden. But which pumpkins are best suited? How long do the small and large works of art last? And do I need special tools, or can I carve my pumpkin with a conventional kitchen knife? We answer the most critical questions about pumpkin carving.


Which pumpkin is best for carving? 

Basically, the larger the area, the more creative you can be when carving. From late summer onwards, both supermarkets and many farmers in the country sell pumpkins and nutmeg gourds in all shapes and sizes. Pay attention to the skin of the pumpkin when buying. The rule of thumb here is: the smoother the skin, the thinner the layer, and the easier it is to carve it. Bottle and butternut squash are also great for carving because they’re not that tough.

If you want to carve eerily beautiful pumpkin faces for Halloween, secure the best specimens in good time. Because in the days before October 31, most beautiful pumpkins are already sold out. When stored in a cool place (for example, on the balcony or in the garden shed), a whole pumpkin will keep for several months.


What I need to carve a pumpkin? 

For pumpkin carvings that are not too elaborate, a large and a small, sharp kitchen knife are sufficient. It would be best to cut off the pumpkin lid and the small one for the carvings if you had the large blade. If you want to decorate your pumpkin with a pretty dotted pattern, you can use the cordless screwdriver or drill. The best way to hollow out the pumpkin is with an ordinary spoon. A waterproof pen for sketching the pattern should also not be missing.


How long can a carved pumpkin keep?

But there are a few tricks you can use to prevent the pumpkin from going moldy or rotting quickly. For example, an effective method is to rub the inside of the pumpkin with petroleum jelly.
