Instead of cutting out your pumpkin, you'll learn how to carve a pumpkin like a piece of wood using simple tools, such as a permanent marker, a permanent-heavy-line-felt-tip-marker, a single blade knife or pocket knife, a butcher knife, an old toothbrush, a finish nail and/or pounce wheel, and masking tape. If you have any wood carving tools, you can use those too.

Extreme Pumpkin Carving shows you step-by-step through photos and descriptions how to make two different deigns. There is a gallery of twenty-three examples of the best carved pumpkins. Finally, there are twenty different patterns that you can photocopy or trace onto a piece of paper. Then you can enlarge or reduce the pattern to fit the size of your pumpkin. Tape the pattern to the pumpkin, transfer the pattern by using a nail or pounce wheel and then you can begin carving.
I carve at least one pumpkin a year since I was a middle-grader. Typically, I make a photocopy of a pattern using stock paper. Then I cut the pattern pieces out and use them as stencils on the pumpkin. I have watched a few episodes of Halloween War on the Food Network and I also wondered how they did their carvings. The authors did a wonderful job taking step-by-step picture, telling you exactly what to do. Overall, I enjoyed Extreme Pumpkin Carving as it has many useful tips and it makes pumpkin carving fun!
