Just 15 days until Halloweed!! Who’s excited?? Or better yet, who’s ready to carve a pumpkin!?!? Or maybe even smoke it? Yeah…here’s everything you need, from stoney pumpkin carving stencils to my favorite instructional video on how to make a pumpkin bong and tips on keeping that carved pumpkin fresh until Oct. 31st.
So before you do anything your going to need a pumpkin. Once you got one I’d smoke it before I carve it, you know two birds one stone! And for all you visual learners like me, here’s the best pumpkin bong how to video out there from the Smoke Cartel:
That was fun! OK now you got all the hard stuff done, like gutting the pumpkin so lets carve! I don’t know about you but I’m no artist and so the easiest way to carve a dope pumpkin is with a stencil. Here’s the one I used last year:
Just right click view image, print it out, cut it out and trace the image on your pumpkin with a pen or marker. Then you know the rest, carve it out!
Here’s a stencil I’m thinking of using this year:
Same instructions as with the cannabis leaf. Then I have a few inspirational ones I found online like this 420 pumpkin:
Which looks pretty simple to just free hand being lettering and all! Then I have the challenging one where your going to need to have some real pumpkin carving skills that I don’t have and sure as hell can’t teach you:
Wish I knew who did it so I could give them credit..but this is one of those over shared images so the original source is anyone’s guess. But it sure is a dope pumpkin carving job!
Then once you smoke it and carved it and are ready to set it out to rot. Here’s a few tips on keeping it fresher longer:
- Rinse out the pumpkin in water to get rid of any gunk.
- Fill a tub or large bucket with 3 gallons of water.
- Add 3 teaspoons of Clorox (bleach) to the water.
- Dunk your pumpkin is this mix.
- Then just let your pumpkin air dry.
