Get your carving tools out, because we have 31 ways—from spooky to elegant to jolly—to make your house Halloween ready.
As with any project, success starts with good prep work. Begin at the pumpkin patch. Choose a pumpkin with a steady base and an intact stem. Tip: Do not pick up the pumpkin by the stem because it might break off. Look for a firm pumpkin with no mold. Take care that the pumpkin is large enough to give you room for carving your design.
