LOS ANGELES (Gaea Times.com) Less than one and a half day is left for Halloween and pumpkin carvings cannot be delayed anymore. Those who haven’t selected their pumpkin carving designs yet can still find them online. There is a great variety of carving stencils on the web that are available for free. They can be used by almost anyone as they require little expertise. As there is so little time left for Halloween a website has selected the five best pumpkin carving stencils from its staff so that people won’t have to put in the effort themselves.

Many websites have included easy to follow instructions on pumpkin carving methods along with carving designs or stencils, to ensure that beginners don’t face many problems. A few of the designs that are quite popular are vampires, Haunted houses, sawtooth faces, bats and witch on a broomstick. The pumpkin carving stencils and templates are available in printable format. The printout can be taped to the pumpkin and the pumpkin carved as per the instructions. The candle inside the Jack O Lantern can be substituted for a battery powered light if it makes one feel more safe.

One particular site recommends choosing a medium sized pumpkin for a Jack O Lantern as it is easier to carve. Large pumpkins will have thicker walls than the smaller ones and will be more difficult to carve. Beginners in the art of pumpkin carving should choose a simple design as there is not much time left for experimentation. As for those experienced in pumpkin carvings, they can opt for more difficult designs like celebrity faces.
