    We’ve done all kinds of pumpkin decorating and carving. I like both but I have a slight preference for carving because it’s fun lighting them up.

  2. Kathleen Says:

    Pumpkin carving, for sure do we can cook up the seeds!

  3. Kellie O'Shields Says:

    Pumpkin Carving for sure!

  4. amy bishop Says:

    PUMPKIN painting :)

  5. Lisa M Says:

    This year we will be drilling our pumpkins! we scoop out seeds and then use a drill to make holes-either a pattern or random. Add candle, or light and they’re really beautiful!

  6. Shelbi Stockdale Says:

    Pumpkin carving!

  7. Meghan Says:

    Carving the big pumpkin and painting the little ones!

  8. Karrie Harms Says:

    We have done both and I think I like painting then decorating.

  9. Sadie Says:

    Pumpkin carving!

  10. Jenelle Says:

    Pumpkin carving all the way!

  11. Ashley LLloyd Says:

    I love both this year we choose pumpkin painting. We have food plans for that punkin.

  12. Robin Says:

    It’s a great big mess, but pumpkin-carving definitely gets my vote. It’s such an odd-looking thing inside. We like to roast the seeds too!

  13. Mia E Says:

    I like pumpkin painting, you can get different details when you use paint. Then when the season is over, wash the paint off, roast it and make pumpkin seeds and pumkin squares… Yummy!

  16. Alea Shinn Says:

    Painting!!! The pumpkin lasts longer that way and it’s way less messier!!!


  17. Amber Saxby Says:

    pumpkin carving for sure, the main objective is to get all the seeds out for roasting!

  18. Laura R. Says:

    Tough call. It used to be carving, but now that we have little kiddos, sharp knives don’t seem like such a good idea!

  19. Karen Says:

  20. Chelle Says:

    Pumpkin carving. It’s classic. Although, I hate touching all the ‘guts.’

  21. Lynn Says:

    We carve so that the seeds can be roasted and the kids get the excitement of lighting a candle to put inside!

  22. Stephanie Says:


  23. Yvette Rogers Says:

    Both are great!

  24. Tom O Says:

    Carving!!! We then toast the seeds and admire our work.

  26. Flibitz Says:

    Little one isn’t old enough for a knife, so painting it is. Though we’re also leaning towards the ‘mr. potato head’ method of decorating.

  27. monica Says:

    Congratulations to Jamie C. for winning the Day #17 Giveaway.
