This Halloween we’re giving you the opportunity to win 1 of 5 Halloween hampers. All you have to do is upload your carved pumpkin to our Facebook page for a chance to win.

We want to see you use your creativity and skills to carve the creepiest pumpkin you can imagine.

If you get stuck, have a look at our pumpkin templates here for ideas and inspiration.

The competition closes on 31st October 2017.

Good luck.

Pumpkin Carving Instructions

Step 1: Find the perfect pumpkin

The bigger, the better. We found it easier to carve pumpkins which were bigger but it’s completely up to you, if you want to use a smaller pumpkin, that’s absolutely fine.

Step 2: Remove the seeds and inside of pumpkin

Carefully cut a wide circle around the stem of the pumpkin. It will need to be big enough to fit your fist through the hole. Pull out the seeds and inside of the pumpkin using your hand, an ice cream scoop or spoon to scrape the inside clean.

Step 3: Set up your template on your pumpkin

Once you have removed all of the gunk and goo out of your pumpkin, it’s time to take your template and stick it onto your pumpkin, trace all of the design onto the pumpkin and remove the template. If you’re not using a template, draw your design onto the pumpkin to help guide you when you’re ready to carve.

Step 4: It’s time to get carving

Follow your guidelines and carve your pumpkin. You can get creative by shaving parts of the pumpkin to give a two-tone effect or enhance the pumpkin by adding nuts and bolts to it or even a splash of paint. It’s completely up to you.
