We carved pumpkins this weekend at my house. For the last few years I've just purchased pumpkins and not carved them because lets face it it makes a mess and is so hard to clean the guts out of the gourd. I found the most amazing tool that everyone should have it's the 'Pumpkin Gutter'. I purchased mine from Amazon.

Let me just say this thing worked amazing. A couple of other tips:

1. We used a jig saw to cut open the top of the pumpkin

2. For the dotted flower and dotted pumpkins we used an electric drill and different sized bits! Here are our results. The best $12 bucks I've spent.
