Sharpen your knives and gather your pumpkin carving tools because you still have a few days before Halloween to create a squash masterpiece. In fact, this is one area where it’s a good idea to procrastinate. If you carve deep into a pumpkin, the carving will only last a few days. So, pick out your pumpkin as soon as you can but wait to slice and dice it until the day before you want to display it. There’s a wide world of free pumpkin stencils and templates available on the internet, and we have a plethora of geeky carved pumpkins to inspire you.
