I hadn't thought about that. But it makes sense! I'm definitely going to have to try that this year!

Awesome. I can't wait to try this. We always wait to the last minute because the pumpkin doesn't keep. Thanks for the great tip.

To make your jack-o-lantern smell nice, sprinkle some cinnamon on the inside of the lid. The heat from the candle will enhance the aroma.

Good idea. Do you have any suggestions to keep the gnats away if you keep it outside?

Vickie -- I think coating all the surfaces with petroleum jelly will do the trick.
