Invest in a carving kit from the local dollar store to ensure you have the right tools for the job. Then depend on HGTV to get free pumpkin carving templates to make your creation stand out from the crowd. Often jack-o-lanterns have familiar triangular cutouts for the eyes, nose and mouth. The free pumpkin templates at the HGTV website give people incredible ideas. For example, you can carve a jack-o-lantern featuring the infamous Headless Horseman.
