X-Acto knives at the ready.
Carving pumpkins is the best Halloween activity to show of your crafting skills and get your hands a little dirty (plus, it gives you an excuse to whip up a bunch of delicious pepita recipes). But you've been there, done that with the toothy grin and triangle nose. This Halloween, mix it up with a creative new design no one else on your block will have. If that seems too complex for your knife skills, skip carving altogether and try one of our painted pumpkin ideas instead!
