Halloween is coming up fast, but what happens to all those pumpkins once it is over? Our Madison New Britain Blog is sharing a few things you can do to make use of your pumpkin instead of just tossing it out. We hope you have a fun time making your pumpkins functional here in Chalfont, PA!

Make Vegetable Stock

Instead of throwing them away, use the stringy guts of your pumpkin to make into a flavorful vegetable stock! Then use the vegetable stock you have made to make some homemade soup.

Use Your Pumpkin as a Planter

Use your hollowed-out pumpkin as a planter for potted plants. Transfer your plant into a pot as your pumpkin begins to deteriorate.

Make a Pumpkin Face Mask

Puree your pumpkin and make a moisturizing face mask with it. Here’s what you will need to make this mask: pumpkin puree, organic honey, and skim milk (almond or soy milk works too).

Create a Pumpkin Bird Feeder

Turn your pumpkin into a bird feeder by following these steps from Martha Stewart’s blog. All you will need is a tool for cutting and poking holes in your pumpkin, a pumpkin, some twine, and bird seed. Afterward, sit back and relax on your apartment balcony and watch all the different birds enjoying your creation.

Turn Pumpkins into Serving Bowls

Save on decorations and dishwashing by turning your hollowed out pumpkin into a serving bowl for soup, cider, or punch. Follow the tutorial in the link from My Persian Kitchen to turn your pumpkin into the perfect serving bowl.

Make Pumpkin Chips

Dry the skin of your pumpkin in your oven or in a dehydrator to make crispy pumpkin chips. Season them with salt or your favorite chip seasoning and enjoy!
