1.Turn your Pumpkin into a Planter
Keep the Autumn festivities going by using your pumpkin as a planter for a small potted plant. The planter will last for several weeks, and then you can plant it directly in your garden to decompose
2. Create a Pumpkin Birdfeeder
Feed your neighbourhood birds with a pumpkin birdfeeder.
4. Try Pumpkin Painting
This is a great chance for kids to have fun creating art with pumpkins, especially if they’re a little young for carving tools.
5. Save the Seeds
Not a fan of eating the seeds? Instead, hold onto them to plant in your garden next spring.
Growing your own pumpkins will save you money — and let you enjoy even more homemade treats next year.
6. Compost Your Pumpkin
At the very least, your leftover pumpkin can help you grow an incredible garden next year. Cut it into smaller pieces and toss it in the compost pile, then mix it into your soil next spring. A carved pumpkin makes wonderful compost. They break down within a couple of weeks and give your garden some much-needed nutrients.
