  • PumpkinLady.com provides a wide selection of clever design templates, most for less than $.99. Click around the site for some great ideas.  You’ll also find 12 designs for FREE  here.

I recommend a couple of great tools for making your pumpkin carving project easier:

Pumpkin Carving

  • For the more serious pumpkin carving project, I recommend the Messermeister Pumpkin Carving Kit which includes a chef quality Pumpkin/Melon knife, scoop and carving tools in a storage case.  The special blades are designed to carve intricate designs beautifully (not for the kiddos, though)!   They’ll give a great grip when cutting and carving pumpkins and thick melons, too.

Pumpkin Carving

  • If you want one really good tool, I recommend getting a special Pumpkin/Melon Carving knife. We really like the Warren Pro Pumpkin Carving knife. It is well made with a walnut handle and comes with several sturdy replacement blades that have a fine saw like cutting action ~ they will not bend or break as with the cheaper versions.  Again, this is not safe for kids.
