Firstly, you need to carve your own pumpkin. You can create any design you like, using any variety of pumpkin! It doesn’t have to be a pumpkin either—You can use any fruit or vegetable!
If you’re stuck for ideas or need help, you can find my step-by-step pumpkin carving tips on my blog.
To be in with a good chance of winning, think of unique, fun and clever designs for your pumpkins. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box either, feel free to use paint, pen and anything you think will stand out.
