Very few of us are skilled professionals in pumpkin carving and if you wanted to include your kids into the Halloween fun craft activities you should keep in mind that some of the pumpkin carving tools are not suitable for children. However, a brilliant DIY Halloween pumpkin carving project, which will be kids friendly and safe is to use cookie cutters. You will need a rubber mallet, cookie cutters of various shapes and sizes, a carving knife/paring knife and needle nose pliers. All you need to do is to place your cookie cutter on the pumpkin and hit it with the rubber mallet. Remove the cookie cutter from the pumpkin and cut the outline of the shape you made. Pop-out the piece, carefully clean the inside of the pumpkin and you are ready to insert a candle or a tea light!

With professional pumpkin carving tools you may create elaborate scary face pumpkin designs. However, such tools require some experience. In addition, with enough creativity you would not need an expensive set of pumpkin carving tools. We have another hint for you which will allow you create original Halloween decoration without much effort. How about using a drill, a linoleum cutter and a small spade? The drill will help you make perfect round holes in various sizes. Think of making vertical series of holes around the pumpkin and you will have a beautifully glittering lantern as a table centerpiece for your Halloween party. The linoleum cutter will give you the opportunity for a more detailed carving and you may carve flowers, leaves, stars – anything that you wish. Linoleum cutters are perfect for intricate designs. Find your inspiration in the gallery below and enjoy yourselves!
