There is nothing quite like a pumpkin patch in the fall. The trees are beautiful and the kids are in heaven, always looking for the largest pumpkin in the patch to see if they can move it. For those of you lucky enough to visit a farm this year, here are a few tips on how to pick the perfect pumpkin for your pumpkin decorating.
- Gnarly stems – a good crooked stem is great when placed on its side to portray a witch
- Tall and thin – these are great for large stencils and ghost faces
- Small and squat – these are perfect for the typical carved jack-o-lantern
No matter what you choose, and whether from a patch or a grocery store, enjoy the moments with your families.
