Welcome to the Hauntworld.com FREE pumpkin patterns page. All pumpkin designs are FREE to download and use on your next pumpkin patch carving project. We will also add more as the season goes on so please check back often. Listed under the pumpkin designs are our pumpkin carving tips. Also linked to this page are Trick or Treating Safety Tips. We will be adding several more pumpkin carving tips and free pumpkin carving designs for Halloween 2009. Have a safe and happy Halloween and get ready to carve those pumpkins!
Tip One: Pick a nice round pumpkin or a pumpkin with a flat side on the front. Do not start with a pumpkin that has odd shapes or is already showing signs of rotting.
Tip Two: Get rid of the pumpkin stem by cutting a wide circle around it. Now clean the pumpkins guts out. It is best to do most of this work with your hands then take an ice scream scooper to remove anything stuck to the sides.
Tip Three: Now take your Hauntworld design and tape it right to the pumpkin. Make sure the surface is dry and clean. Now you want to trace the design into the pumpkin with a pumpkin poker. Simply poke the pattern into the pumpkin by poking holes through the paper. When you remove the paper you will see the design poked into the pumpkin however make sure you keep your design handy for reference.
Tip Four: Use your pumpkin saw to start the process of carving your pumpkin. Take your time to make cuts and never use a knife to carve your pumpkin.
Tip Five: Light your pumpkin. Today Halloween stores sell all sorts of battery operated lights some that strobe and do other effects. Depending on what type of design you use will determine how much light and what type of light is required.
Tip Six: We suggest heading to your local art store, for those fine detail pumpkin carving projects. Art stores will have all sorts of carving tools for artist who normally sculpt clay or foam. These carving tools will come in handy to create the highly detailed pumpkin carvings.
Tip Seven: HAVE FUN! Take time to get your kids involved, this is a family project and what makes Halloween so much fun for most Americans.
