Pumpkin Carving Patterns

Pumpkin Carving Setholiday ideas

Pumpkin Carving Set
from Amazon.comholiday ideas

Well, I love letting the girls design their perfect triangular eyed and one-tooth mouthed pumpkins but as they get older they're starting to want fancier designs on their Halloween masterpieces.  While you can muddle through some of the simpler designs with serrated knives, tablespoons and a small nail, you'll be well served investing in some pumpkin carving tools if you plan on attempting some of the more detailed designs.  Pumpkin carving sets are quite easy to find at the right time of year at your local Walmart-type store, home and garden store or even on-line.

These are not intended as cut and paste paper crafts -- check out our Jack-o'-Lantern Faces instead.
