Save the Pumpkin: Pumpkin Preserving DIY!

We all love to carve a pumpkin at Halloween. But they go bad so quickly! We have resorted to painting them in years past but now the kids are older and they are demanding a carving session. I love a carved pumpkin. They are so sweet to light and enjoy during the nights leading to Halloween, and they make a house look ready on Halloween night. I hate to see them rot. So this year we are researching ideas to keep them from rotting too soon.

I found several ideas and asked several friends what has worked best for them in the past. And I have come to the conclusion that nothing is perfect, but there are several ways to keep the rotting from happening too soon.

We have gathered a couple of ideas for you to try out. We hope that this helps you to enjoy some of your favorite carved pumpkins this fall. And learn a new technique for pumpkin preserving.
