Carving pumpkins is always a fun idea in theory, but once I get started with it I always remember what a HUGE task it can be. Thankfully there are plenty of other ways you can decorate your pumpkins that don’t involve hollowing out pumpkin goo, and they bring a new level of creativity and fun to your Halloween decor.
