If you think there's a trick to carving Halloween pumpkins that will be the talk of the neighborhood, then you're in for a real treat. The secret is the right combination of tools and techniques, plus a little time and patience.
This year, why not be the house on the block with the jack-o'-lanterns that everyone has to come and see? It's easy with the help of a new, easy-to-use pumpkin carving kit. It contains everything you need -- except the pumpkins -- to carve 19 Halloween masterpieces, including a 40-page book with full-size, traceable patterns and an 11-piece pumpkin-carving tool kit.
