(And to save you from that mess — just sayin'!)

Here's what you do: 

1. Purchase foam pumpkins and a carving kit from the craft store. 

2. Carve your foam pumpkins as you see fit. 

Pro tip: Laura and Zack, the creators of Westbury Field of Screams, use a box cutter to carve their foam pumpkins.

3. Put glow sticks on the inside and you have your reusable pumpkin! 

Pro tip: If the colors fade over the years, you can always touch them up with a little orange spray paint.

Maybe carve ONE real pumpkin for tradition's sake and do this for the rest of the patch. 😉🎃
