Create amazing jack-o-lanterns
Create captivating jack-o-lanterns in record time with your trusty power tools. Once you look around your garage or workshop, you’ll find all kinds of creative ways to expedite pumpkin carving and be the envy of every house on the block.
Start with a pattern or draw your own
The first step is to draw your pattern (or trace someone else’s) on your pumpkin. We taped down our pattern and used carbon tracing paper to easily transfer our mask design.
Tracing paper makes it easy
Carbon tracing paper is available at most office supply stores or online. To use carbon tracing paper, simply trace your pattern on top of a sheet with a pencil. Anywhere pressure is applied, the backing rubs off on the pumpkin. (Tracing paper is also useful for transferring patterns onto wood.)
