With all the hype this year over the Twilight books, movie and now New Moon, it's no wonder online companies that sell Halloween pumpkin carving supplies are busy. To sweeten the deal, companies like Pink Ray Gun.com, are giving away free pumpkin stencils just to get Halloween fans to their website. Twilight carving designs are one of their most popular stencils. In fact, Pink Ray Gun says, "Our first Twilight themed template was a huge success, garnering almost 5,000 downloads in a few days. The good people over at Team Twilight tell us that a solo shot of Edward would go over really, really well."
There's no catch with some online Halloween companies other than you'll want to window-shop and see what else they have. These websites are smart. They know you'll need carving knives, more intricate carving patterns, and maybe a Halloween Carving Ideas book while you're at it. Jack-o'-lantern carving transfer tools and carving saws can all be purchased from them.
Not all stencils are free however. If you want the whole Twilight Pumpkin Carving package, you can buy it from Ultimate pumpkin stencils.com for $13.95. It includes 4 quality stencils of the most popular Twilight characters like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
The Pumpkin Lady.com has a scary online deal - the more you buy, the more you save. 10%, 20% to 40% off with 20 stencils. Lest you think the pumpkin carving patterns are going to set you back a lot, keep in mind these patterns are cheap. Pumpkin stencils from online companies start at $1.49 and go up from there.
Not into Twilight and New Moon? No problem. There's plenty of free Halloween items to download. Check out Free Pumpkin Carving Stencils and Free Halloween Coloring Pages and Printable Cutouts for more information.
When you're all done carving your Halloween pumpkin, you can take it to a Halloween Carving Contest and have it judged. Prizes are given for the best pumpkin, the scariest pumpkin, and the biggest Halloween pumpkin. Check local listings for Halloween carving contests in your area.
