When I was younger, pumpkin carving was my favorite part of autumn (except, of course, for getting candy on Halloween). My family and I would put enough newspaper down to cover most of the kitchen floor, and we would all get to work creating our own jack-o-lanterns. This tradition died after a while, as my brothers and I grew up, moved out, and started making traditions of our own. But I still held (and continue to hold) a special place in my heart for decorating pumpkins in the fall. I’ve made sure to carve or decorate at least one pumpkin a year, regardless of who joins me in the process. It just wouldn’t be fall without it! So, after a lifetime of trial and error, I’ve come up with quite a few tips to make the process go smoother to ensure that I can continue this tradition no matter how busy I may be. So, if you’re looking for ways to make pumpkin decorating a bit easier, or if you’re trying your hand at it for the first time, these 11 Pumpkin Decorating Tips are sure to help you out, whether you’re carving or going a less traditional route.
