TikTok creator @27travels show you how to carve any image you want onto your pumpkin. The trick is outlining the image with push pins to create a map of where you need to draw or shade.
Pumpkin carving can be a great affordable way to get creative during October, but if your Jack-o’-Lantern always ends up looking a little wonky, try these pumpkin carving tips from TikTok.
1. Use this hack to carve complex designs.
2. Break out the power tools on your pumpkin.
Don’t have the patience to slowly hack your way through a pumpkin? You can use a drill and different sized bits like @zenspireddesigns who made an adorable owl.
3. You’ve been cutting your pumpkin the wrong way.
While your natural instinct might be to cut your hole in the top of your pumpkin, apparently we’ve all been doing it wrong. TikTok creator @lidsayroggenbuck shows how cutting the hole on the bottom keeps more of the moisture in your pumpkin for longer and makes the seeds easier to remove.
