Tonight we carved our first ever family pumpkin. Bailey got to select the design so it is no surprise it is Mockey Mouse. Disney had a great template.
What you need
- Printer to print the template
- Thumb tack
Step 1 – Print the template.
Step 2 – Cut a hole in the bottom of the pumpkin. I know most people cut the top off but after reading a bunch of blogs we tried cutting the bottom and it worked well.
Step 3 – Clean out the inside. We separated the guts and the seeds for cooking tomorrow.
Step 4 – Cut out the template and tape it to the pumpkin. Using a thumb tack make small holes around the black areas in the template.
Step 6 – Using a small knife cut along the dots.
Step 7 – Remove the areas that were black on the template and soak the pumpkin in a mixture of vinegar and water and then add Vaseline to the cut areas to help preserve it.
