World champion pumpkin carver Dave Finkle shows us how to carve the spookiest pumpkin on the block
Donít make a pumpkin carving move until youíve read this.
What youíll need
A pumpkin. Obvs. (Make sure yours has a Red Tractor label, so you know itís up to scratch)
A pumpkin carving kit (which you can get in most supermarkets)
Tea light candles (Top Dave Finkle tip: Three is the magic number)
A stencil. You can download Daveís spooky cat one here
Cut a hole in the bottom of your pumpkin and clean out the insides.
Top Dave Finkle tip: The cleaner the insides, the brighter your pumpkin will burn.
Pin your stencil onto the pumpkin and etch around it. At this stage youíre not looking to cut all the way through the pumpkin, just to score the design into the rind.
Top Dave Finkle tip: Take your time with this stage, patience will get you the best results.
Now with the stencil removed, carve out the design using your pumpkin carving saw.
Top Dave Finkle tip: This is (apparently) the fun part.
Stick your pumpkins atop the lit candles.
Sit back and (smugly) admire your pumpkin carving prowess.
Yes, you my friend are a genius.
