Hi, I'm Paula Pierce, and this is pumpkin carving cut outs. Pumpkin carving cut outs are a fun way to add a decorative element to your front porch. You can find kits, you can look on the internet for some designs, and once you get the hang of it, you could probable come up with your ow designs as well. First select the pumpkin to carve. Make sure it is sized right for your design. You will need a pumpkin carving kit, or specially designed tools. Next, carve out the bottom of your pumpkin. You can open it from the top if you'd like, but many of these carving designs fit better if the pumpkin is carved from the bottom. Clean and scrape your pumpkin. Attach your chosen pattern. The kits come with the pattern perforated, so when you use a marker or crayon to trace it, your design is easily transferred. Remove your pattern. Grab your pumpkin and use the specially designed saw to gently saw out your design. It may help top hold your pumpkin in your lap. Use gentle pressure, or you may break your saw. Light it up, and you are all done.
