3 Ways to Extend the Life of a Halloween Pumpkin
Try these fun ideas for repurposing your pumpkin. Some of them must be done with a freshly carved squash, while others can wait until after the holiday.
- Gutsy moves. Retrieve and roast the pumpkin seeds to make a delicious snack, or puree the pulp into a facial treatment. There are many recipes available online for pumpkin face masks, such as this one from The Nourished Life blog.
- For the birds. Turn your jack-o’-lantern into an edible bird feeder by hollowing it out and hanging it from string. Instructables.com offers easy instructions for fashioning a feeder.
- Mum’s the word. Use your old pumpkin as a planter to contain a colorful chrysanthemum or other small potted plant.
