How to clean the pumpkins to decorate them?
The first thing will be to clean the pumpkins, both inside and outside. Remember that if we want this decoration to last a while, we must remove the seeds of the pumpkin otherwise it would be ruined too soon.
To do this, take the cutter and, like a door, cut a square, a rectangle or a circle on top of it. We remove the lid and empty the pumpkin inside. Clean it well by removing all the pulp and guts to say it somehow.
Once you have it, let them dry for a while the inside of it. Once you have done it we put the lid or door, we can even add a bit of adherent to the edges so that it does not come off and after that we proceed to paint.
Choose the motif that you like or go with your decoration. If you are good at drawing, we can do it by hand, if you do not look for a drawing that you like and calculate it on these to then paint. With a little patience we will have a decoration with the most beautiful pumpkins for Halloween.
