Atlanta New HomesNow that October is here, it is the perfect time to get your Atlanta new home Halloween ready! Carving pumpkins is a great way to spend time together as a family and create SPOOKTACULAR fall decorations.

Carving a pumpkin can be messy, but that is half the fun! When removing the seeds and stringy flesh, use a large spoon or ice cream scooper to speed up the process and keep your hands cleaner. Using a template or drawing on the pumpkin with a water-based marker beforehand will help ensure you get the design you are wanting. As you carve your pumpkin, gently push the carved pieces into the pumpkin. That way they’re easier to grab and you don’t mess up the design. If you do make a mistake, you can reattach a piece by using a toothpick to pin it back into place. Read More→
