Pumpkin carving season is finally here! But if you're a klutz with a knife (like me), you'll appreciate these super easy pumpkin carving tutorials. You'll keep your fingers intact and have a beautiful display for your porch at the same time. Win-win!
Every Halloween I get grandiose ideas of intricate pumpkin carvings, but alas, I just don't have the skills to create a masterpiece on a gourd. But, lack of chiseling skills aside, I can create a pretty sweet Jack-o-lantern using the tools featured in a lot of these tutorials.
Stencils and printable templates make creating a design super easy. And when it comes to the actual cutting... Well, why not use a drill? A dremel rotary tool? A cookie cutter and a hammer? Those make the job much easier!
So check out these pumpkin carving tutorials and ideas for inspiration to make your Halloween a spooktacular one.
