Each Halloween, I get these grand ideas of making an awesome jack-o-lantern. The problem is that I am not particularly good at carving pumpkins. That has led me to try all sorts of tools and patterns with little success.
The problem with the patterns I get from Wal-Mart is that they never stick very well with tape, making them hard to trace onto the pumpkin. These self-adhesive pumpkin pattern sheets are available just in time for carving season. You put them into your printer, output one of the free patterns, then stick it directly to your pumpkin and carve.
You don’t have to fiddle with tape or use a poker to make little holes in your pumpkin that will be impossible to see when you remove the pattern. Three sheets will cost you $3.99(USD) at ThinkGeek. Then head on over to ZombiePumpkins.com to download some sweet designs.
