Power tools make everything better, even carving pumpkins. Clean and carve using your handy dandy power drill with these tips. Umm, heck yah!
Use the right light

If you're looking for a Jack-o-lantern that's a little, well, different, then you'll love this little spewer. All you need is some dishwashing liquid, baking powder, food coloring and vinegar. Here are the directions.

Still not sure about your costume? Just ask Siri for her suggestions. Mostly she'll just offer some laughs, but sometimes she actually comes up with a winner. An eclipse is actually a great idea for Halloween 2017!
To prevent your Jack-o-lantern from looking like a maggot-filled zombie in just a few days, spray it inside and out with clear enamel paint. Spraying the inside with WD-40 also helps elongate Jack's life.
Build a pumpkin scarecrow
Make your yard unique this year by building a pumpkin-headed scarecrow. Use sticks or broom handles tied together to form the body. Then, dress it in old clothes and then stick a pumpkin on top. Draw on a face using markers or craft paint.
