5 pumpkin carving tips

Posted: Updated:

Dale K. hosts a pumpkin carving competition with the Fox 9 morning crew and offers a few tips for your rotund creation to dazzle the neighborhood.

1. Serrated knives are best for carving the initial shapes, then get intricate with a smaller knife

2. Try carving a square top, it's much easier to cut than a round top

3. Wipe bleach diluted in water on the inside and outside of the pumpkin to preserve it

4. Place Vaseline around the exposed edges to keep from wilting

5. Use battery operated lights so they don't blow out in the wind
