Hi, I'm Paula Pierce, and this is pumpkin carving designs and faces. Pumpkin carving designs are getting more and more popular every year. There's a lot of kits available, and designed you can find on the Internet. Some people like to just do the traditional faces, which you can freehand or use a pattern, and some people like to do more elaborate designs. I'm gonna show you a couple of examples of what you can do with your pumpkin this year. Typical traditional faces are often designed on the fly with a felt tip marker. These shapes are easy to cut out with the knives you have in your kitchen. Traditional Jack-o-lanterns are always sure to please. A new option that is gaining popularity is to carve a special design into your pumpkin. Pattern books and tools are widely available at your local store in the seasonal decoration aisle. You can also draw your own design and trace it onto your pumpkin with carbon paper. When carving a more complex design, for best results, use a specially designed pumpkin carving saw.
