Pumpkin Carving Kits, Tools, Sets & Stencils for the Perfect Halloween Jack-o-Lantern
Prep 'em, cut 'em, scoop 'em, and carve 'em up! With our pumpkin
carving tools and carving kits, you don't have to be an expert to get
impressive results. Begin with a stencil included in one of our carving kits or
develop your own design on a sheet of tracing paper — it's easy to transfer the
pattern directly onto the gourd of your choice. Then start carving. With the
help of our saw tooth scoops and spoons, battery-operated jig saws, and other
specialty pumpkin carving tools that included in kits, that neatly carved
jack-o-lantern with the crisp features will be done in no time.
"Why all the different tools?" you may wonder. Part of
it is price, as you guessed — battery powered tools may cost a little more, but
they work a whole lot faster. But the main thing is that different carving
tools and saws give you different levels of control, while etching tools aren't
for carving all — they're for engraving designs in the hard skin of the
pumpkin, so that the soft pulp underneath glows eerily when the jack-o-lantern
is lit from within.
There's no getting around it — even with the best tools, carving
a great jack-o-lantern is a fair amount of work, so if you're interested in
something simpler and even faster, try one of our toppers or pumpkin decorating
kits. With these, you simply plug decorative elements into the pumpkin for
instant character — no carving required!
The unorthodox approach saves you loads of time, and you still
get full credit for Halloween decorating! But back to the other, more
labor-intensive jack-o-lanterns we were discussing earlier... When the
carving's done, insert LED flicker lights safely to duplicate the effect of
candle light. As a bonus, they operate for several hours.
Specialty illumination like color-changing strobe lights offer
an eye-catching effect for the pumpkin carving exhibitionist. They're
longer-lasting and safer than standard candles, and weather-resistant, too.
With so many affordable pumpkin carving tools, kits, stencils,
and lighting accessories at your fingertips, there's no excuse for a mediocre
jack-o-lantern this year. Get off the couch, you creator of great pumpkin art,
spread a newspaper on the table, and start cutting, scooping, and carving!
