Carving pumpkins isn’t exactly easy work. From the gutting of the pumpkin, to the actual stenciling and carving, it can take hours to create the perfect pumpkin. Then, when it’s all said and done, it lasts about 5 days before it starts to rot attract bugs! Carving pumpkins is messy, and can even be dangerous with the large knives.
