If you’ve ever gone trick-or-treating, you know that some people take pumpkin carving to the extreme.

But for those of us who are less artistically inclined, carving a pumpkin can be a frustrating experience at best and a dangerous one at worst. I can’t even count how many times I’ve tried to cut a shape into the side of a rind and almost sliced my own fingers off instead.

And all of that doesn’t even take into consideration how messy and complicated it is to even clean the pumpkin out in the first place. What if there was a better way? Thanks to RussOlsenVideos there is, and all you need is a drill and a beater from a hand mixer.

The beater blade does an incredible job of removing all the gooey strings and seeds from the sides of the pumpkin, making them easy to scoop out.

Then you can use different sized drill bits to create patterns instead of handling slippery knives.
