PUMPKIN CARVING

SpookMaster has the best selection of pumpkin carving patterns anywhere on the Internet. Hundreds of great designs, they are the #1 choice when looking for wonderful pumpkin patterns. Best if all is that all of their patterns, templates and stencils are free, that's right, completely free!

You can carve some truly beautiful and artistic pumpkins freehand, but if you want to create really detailed carvings you'll want to use a pumpkin carving pattern. If you've never carved a pumpkin this way before you may be a bit intimidated, but don't worry, its easier than you think and you'll love the results. Click here for info on pumpkin carving patterns.


Have a pumpkin carving contest for your kids and their friends. Buy a few smaller pumpkins and give prizes for the most creative. You can also use paints as an alternative. Click here for info on throwing a pumpkin carving party!


When choosing a pumpkin to carve for Halloween, make sure that you find one that fits the carving idea you have. If using a template, make sure that it will fit. Click here for  lots of pumpkin carving information.


You can use tool from around the house, like an ice cream spade, to clean out the inside of your pumpkin. Visit Pumpkin Carving 101 for lots of pumpkin carving information.


Keep all your pumpkin carving tools in a tool box so you'll know where they are every year. Keep them clean and sharpened and you'll be all set for carving! Visit Pumpkin Carving 101 for lots of pumpkin carving information.


You can make your own pumpkin carving stencils from clip art and your printer. Find something simple that you like, make a negative of it and print it out! Click here for more info!


Instead of buying your pumpkins in a grocery store, check your phone book and newspaper for local pumpkin farms. Make a week-end trip with your kids and let them pick out their own pumpkins! Also, pumpkins are usually less expensive at farms and stands.


If you live in a more rural area or have the yard space, grow your own pumpkins for carving! After you have picked them, leave the vines as part of the yard haunt! Learn more here!


Add some color to your jack-o-lantern display by using some of the many varieties of pumpkins that are out there. Try out the Cinderella, Snowball,  or Atlantic Giant. For more info, check here!


Do you throw away your jack-o-lanterns when they start to rot? Start a tradition of burying them instead! Make a ceremony, get the whole family together and honor the pumpkins that gave their lives for your Halloween! More info here!
