After picking out your pumpkin from your local Lowe's Fall Garden Centre, you'll need the
tools to do the job right.
Pumpkin carving kits will help to make your jack-o-lanterns quick and easy! With individual or party kits you get
pumpkin stencil patterns and durable plastic tools, including a poker, a scoop, and a small saw to make your
jack-o-lantern come to life! Whether you're a beginner or a skilled expert at pumpkin stencils, each kit has plenty
of simple step-by-step carving instructions that's fun for everyone.
If you have an artistic streak and a unique vision, stick with the basics. Start sketching out your unique pumpkin
design and get to work with a carving tool and scooper — you'll have greater control and find the experience
cleaner and safer than using a kitchen knife.
Looking for instant Halloween decorations without any fuss? Place your pumpkin onto cute
and colourful pumpkin stands.
Visitors will do a double-take when they spot these little guys hanging around! You can keep your pumpkin plain,
opt for a ready-made plastic jack-o-lantern, or get creative and carve pumpkin faces to match each stand’s
persona: mummy, skeleton, or Frankenstein.
Don't forget to finish it off with multi-colour, flickering battery-operated lights that will give your pumpkin
stand extra panache.
Spruce up your porch and entryway with warm and vibrant fall decor.
Add a pumpkin topiary that wraps three pumpkin tiers with rich, autumnal hues, or consider the romantic,
vintage country look of classic "grapevine" pumpkins and cream-coloured gourds. Grapevines are
meticulously sculpted over a sturdy pumpkin-shaped metal frame and small, white lights offer a warm, subtle
glow from the inside out.
For a more versatile look, personalize a chalkboard pumpkin as often as you desire, with spooky or witty
messages and sketches to delight your neighbourhood.
