Check out my jack-o'-lantern in the photo. It took about an hour to carve out, and I learned a lot along the way. Take advantage of my trial and error education and save some time with these pumpkin carving tips. Learn how to make your jack-o'-lantern do double duty as an air freshener. Remember, carved pumpkin jack-o'-lanterns are not suitable for food purposes after being lit up and displayed for decoration, but pick up some extra pumpkins during the season to use for cooking.
