Halloween is the buzz word recently and almost everyone is talking about Halloween's, the halloween party, halloween decoration, halloween costume, halloween jewelries, etc. Every Halloween's Day can not be without pumpkins, candied apples, and such. Carving a pumpkin is the technique you have to master before the Halloween's Day.

Carving a pumpkin is not that difficult, but it requries patience.

1. Select a fresh pumpkin in a shape to your preference, whether it is low and round or tall and over-shaped.

2. Draw a circle or hexagon on top of the pumpkin large enough, so that your hands can reach through.

3. Cut through the stem end of the pumpkin along your outline with a sharp knife or pumpkin-carving tool. Use a back-and-forth slicing motion to cut through the thick, tough skin.

4. Remove the stem end, which will act as a cap, making sure you scrape off any seeds or pulp.

5. Use a large spoon to scoop out the seeds and pulp from inside the pumpkin. Hold the spoon by its bowl to get extra leverage while scooping.

6. Draw a pattern for the face on the clean pumpkin with a felt-tip pen, or scribe the lines into the skin using a pencil. Be sure to make the eyes, nose and mouth large enough as it is not that easy to cut out the small ones.

7. Follow your pattern as you cut all the way through the pumpkin.

8. Push the cut-out features gently from the inside of the pumpkin and discard the pieces.

9. Place a votive candle inside the pumpkin to create an eerie glow.

Thus, the Halloween Pumpkin is done and you can cut many different facial expressions and use pumpkins in different shapes to handmade your own Holloween decorations.
