How to choose and carve mini Jack-O-Lantern gourds, and a few tricks on how not to cut yourself while doing it.
Step 1: Choose a Gourd
The first step is pretty obvious; you need to choose a gourd. For this step it is up to you discretion but you will want to choose a gourd that is not too small or too flat. If it is too small you probably won't be able to fit the spoon in to gut the gourd. If it is too flat you wont have enough room to work with inside, and it will look odd.
