I recommend a couple of great tools for making your Pumpkin Carving Project easier…


Pumpkin CarvingPumpkin Carving

I like Pumpkin Masters’ 4-in-1 Carving Tool Kit for intricate detailing of the Jack-O-lantern, plus it’s much safer than a kitchen knife (check out Hobby Lobby or get it for  $6.99 at Amazon).  The Van Vacter Pumpkin Melon Knife  gives you a really great grip when cutting through pumpkins and melons; its special blade carves designs beautifully.  I found it at Target last year (haven’t looked this year, but you can definitely get it at Amazon for about $14)!
