10 Things To Do With a Pumpkin After Halloween

10 Things To Do With a Pumpkin After Halloween

After Halloween, what do you with that big, orange squash sitting on your porch? Here are 10 ideas.

1. Compost it.
2. Cook and puree it.
3. Make it into a birdfeeder.
4. Turn it into a planter.
5. Use it as a serving bowl for soup.
6. Pickle the peel.
7. Apply it as a face mask.
8. Make doggie treats.
9. Wash and roast the seeds
10. Save a few seeds to grow another pumpkin next year!

And one bonus idea:
Donate your pumpkins to an animal farm or animal rescue/sanctuary! See: https://pumpkinsforpigs.org/



  1. Thanks for the great tips! Last year was the first year I did something other than throw it away :( I will definitely make pumpkin soup and season and toast the seeds to top it. May have to save some for planting, too.

  2. Glad it was helpful for you, Tonya. Let me know if you grow any and how they turn out :-)
