Pumpkin carving tools – ideas for a creative Halloween decor

by Kremy


Pumpkin carving tools will be a necessity for everyone who has decided to make a Halloween pumpkin lantern and decorate the home, the garden or the holiday table. What is Halloween without a pumpkin? It is one of the main symbols of the holiday, just as the costumes and the scary stories. With a pumpkin lantern with a candle inside our house get magical and everything has a peculiar, mystical meaning.



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!
