Woooww! Amazing, I've never actually tried pumpkin carving, its not really in our family tradition~ This one is really neat! I think I could use it all year long, ho ho ho! Nice to see some pumpkin carving on deviantart, I do enjoy the warm colours, they look so tasty!

You can start new traditions at any time. You can make up your own patterns or find them on the internet. We all gather once a year at my sister's house to carve. Then we take home the spoils of war with out knives and pumpkins, to display them on out front porches until Halloween, Pagan holiday that it was.

Thank you. Every year my older sister holds a pumpkin carving party. Let's see what we can come up with this year. Alas, I am not sure I will be up for one this year. Ha, I can always supervise. Actually, I think I will design one or two. I have tons more I could post, but that would be boring to most. Have you notice how much work it takes to post something, especially when you do it in SLOW-MO, LOL.

Greetings. The trick is to make your pattern on paper. Pin the paper to the pumpkin, then I use an awl ( a pointed tool for marking surfaces or piercing small holes ), to poke through the paper and into the pumpkin, following along the drawn lines on the paper. Note: Any pointy type tool will work.

When you take the paper off, the pumpkin has the pattern on it, marked by little holes. Use a pen to connect the holes, then start carving.

BUT, here is the big secret to success: Don't carve all of the way through the pumpkin wall. By carving at different depths, you can vary how much light glows through.

Each year we (family and friends) get together at my older sister's house to carve pumpkins.
