Composting Pumpkins

Pumpkins are organic materials that break down easily and enrich the soil with nutrients.

Remove non-organic parts like candles, paint, or decorations, and then chop the pumpkin into smaller pieces to speed up decomposition.

Mix it into your compost pile or drop it off at a local facility.

Make Pumpkin Puree

If your pumpkin is still in relatively good shape, consider turning it into puree.

Cut away any unspoiled sections, remove the skin, and then blend or process the flesh into a smooth puree.

You can use this puree for culinary delights, from pumpkin pies and soups to pancakes and muffins.

Store the puree in airtight containers or freeze it for later use.

Homemade Pumpkin Face Masks

Pumpkins are packed with vitamins and antioxidants, making them an excellent ingredient for DIY skincare products.

Turn your Jack-o'-lantern into a pumpkin face mask by mashing the pumpkin flesh and mixing it with other natural ingredients like honey, yogurt, or oatmeal.

These masks can help exfoliate, hydrate, and brighten your skin.
