Didn’t get around to carving this year? No worries! Simply use permanent markers or paints to draw right on your pumpkins and gourds—your house number, a Jack-O-Lantern face, ghost face—get creative! Note: after Halloween is over, only give wildlife portions of the pumpkin that are marker-free.
Before you place a candle inside your Jack-O-Lantern, coat the lid with spices such as ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice. The heat of the candle will warm the spices and send a delicious scent through the air.
