With Halloween just around the corner, it's crunch-time to get those pumpkins carved and ready! It can be a time-consuming process. However, with power tool carving coming to the forefront, we decided to give it a try. We'll give you the scoop, so that you can become pros too!
But first you'll need...
A pumpkin power saw (optional, but helpful to have)
A cloth, or tarp to work on to contain the mess
An electric drill with different sized drill bits
Pumpkins, large enough to fit a candle inside
We have also made some design templates to print out and use to make the process even faster! Just download and print out the PDF document. These patterns are a starting point, feel free to customize and get creative as you like with your own pumpkin designs!
One of the great things about this technique is that it can be applied to smaller size pumpkins, ya know, those that are typically harder to carve the old fashioned way. We took some artistic liberties with our pumpkins as well, but we still think they turned out great!
What we concluded about this technique is that...
1. It is versatile and easy to execute
2. The outcome is adorable and festive
3. It is a TIME SAVER
4. It can be a little messy
Between the the power saw and the impact drill, the only taxing part of the carving process was cleaning out the inside of the pumpkin. We overall really enjoyed the process and hopefully you will too.
Safe fun is the best fun! Remember to use caution on the night of Trick - or - Treating. Keep the little ones close, don't eat opened candy, and stay clear of those candies you may be allergic to.
