Halloween is right around the corner and you might be thinking of awesome party ideas. While many of us won’t be partying in person this year, there’s nothing wrong with having a shindig on Zoom. If you have ever decorated for Halloween before, you have probably noticed one thing: there are always too many pumpkins! Fortunately, this guide is here to help.

Did you know that you can actually make a pumpkin keg for your next Halloween party? Don’t worry, we were stunned, too. It seems like the sort of thing that you would see in a movie but trust us…..they are real! With the help of this tutorial, you can create one of your own. This is a Halloween DIY project for the ages (and we don’t say that lightly).

These kegs are incredibly easy to make and they will have your Halloween party looking great. The Today Show’s YouTube account is here to provide you with all of the necessary details on how to make them. No Spoon Necessary also has their own tutorial to provide and there is no shortage of guidelines to follow online. All you need to do is choose the right one for your specific purposes.

It’s really that simple, we promise. The Today Show guide is the best one, for our money. They guide you through every step and take all of the guesswork out of the process. To get started, grab yourself a pumpkin. You’re going to be cutting a hole in the top of it so that you can hollow out the inside.

From there, scoop out all of the seeds and guts. Once the insides are totally hollowed out, the pumpkin should be barren and empty. If the pumpkin is going to successfully hold liquid, this step has to be taken care of first. If you have a knife or an apple corer on hand, the next step is also easy. This is when you will create the circle where the keg tap is installed.

To learn more about the ins and outs, be sure to check out The Today Show’s helpful clip. A pumpkin keg may sound complicated to some but when you take the time to watch this guide, you will be pleasantly surprised. Spicing up your next Halloween party has never been this fun ad we absolutely cannot wait to see what everyone ends up coming up with.
