Halloween is over, but that doesn't have to mean tossing your hollowed-out jack-o'-lantern to the curb. There are five great ways to use every part of your gourd to minimize waste and maximize your craftiness.

  • Bird feeder
  • Candle holder


  • Cook your pumpkin and make a tasty puree or pie
  • Plant seeds and grow your own pumpkin patch next season
