Pick a Pumpkin

For these designs, pumpkins should be smooth with minimal ridges. The anchor design works best on a tall pumpkin while the skeleton fish is best on a short, squatty one. If carving a fresh pumpkin, make sure it’s firm and disease-free. Heavy fresh pumpkin signal thick walls which can block some of the light. Make sure the pumpkin is balanced and not wobbly.
