One of the best things that you are going to want to explore during Halloween season is carving pumpkins. The downside is the mess that will no doubt ensue when you start this project. To ensure that you are not going through a huge mess of sorts, consider the following tips and tricks that are going to help you make sure that your workspace is absolutely fun, safe, and clean. The following methods are going to give you a leg up on the process.
Before you get moving forward, consider your supplies. Make sure that you get a good size pumpkin, and a plastic table cover together. Aside from that, get old newspaper, and even some old sheets to bring along, and find a good size table. You’re going to want to gather these before you set your sights on the carving process. Once you have these in place, you’re going to be able to progress with relative ease.
Getting To The Carving
Once you have all of the things you need gathered, take the following steps to get ready to carve. Set up the staging first. Find a spot where you want to work with this, then put your wrappings on a table. You can even turn them into a mummified solution by adding multiple layers of white cloth, and taping down edges to make it look like it’s a mummified option. This makes the staging area a bit more “Halloween” themed.
Once your staging is ready, get to the carving, and have a bit of fun. Once you’re done, you can take the table wrapping and covers and pull together all the garbage and elements. That will make clean up fun, and easy.
If you want to bring about more Halloween themes, you can always test out different set pieces, colors and more. Instead of going with a mummified look, you could add green tablecloth, to add a little Frankenstein option, or add a little red and black for a bit of a nod towards classic vampire lore. Whatever the case is, when you stage your pumpkin carving workspace, you won’t have to worry about cleaning things up, or making a mess. Make a mess, so long as it stays on top of your table cloth and newspapers, and you’ll be able to clean with ease. That’s what makes these tips work so well. Test it out once, and you’ll see how easy this all is.
