Pumpkin Carving Tips

Jack -O-Lantern Preservation Tips:
If you live in a dry climate, after carving, soak your pumpkin in cold water, allowing it to absorb water. This prevents premature shriveling. If your pumpkin begins to shrivel, you can resoak or spray with a squirt bottle.
If you live in a wet climate (like me!) and moisture is not the problem but the enemy (moldy pumpkins, not so pretty!). You can prevent mold growth by spraying or coating with a LITTLE unscented bleach.
Always seal all cut edges with a thin layer of petroleum jelly (it works!).
Happy Carving, Carli
My name is Carli, owner, designer & creative mind behind DimplePrints. I am married to my high school sweetheart & we have 3 wonderful kids. In the beginning I simply started by wanting to share a piece of our lives with loved ones by sending cards & invitations for special occasions. With the support of family, friends & great customers, it has grown into Dimpleprints.
