Why Don't You...Cut the Bottom of Your Pumpkin?

Consider cutting a hole in bottom of your jack o lantern this year. The pumpkin will be more stable and easier to carve AND your candle will sit up easily on the smooth surface. Simply place the candle on the ground and place your carved jack o lantern on top!

  7. I think you also need to cut a vent hole in the top. That's what I've done when I cut the bottom out.
