Thanks to Monica’s ingenuity, we bought wood carving tools instead of the typical cheap plastic set to design and carve our pumpkins for our 2nd Craft Meet-Up.

When we dug into our pumpkins, a steak knife and wood carving /whittling tools were much sturdier than a plastic carving set, and allowed for more design detail. If you’re interested in trying this for yourself, the wood carving tools can be purchased here- Mini Wood Carving Chisel Set. They cost about the same price as the plastic set. These tools aren’t as kid safe, but what carving tool really is, plastic or not? Using these tools we were able to achieve unique and creative results.

Next craft meet-up project, plasti-dipped pumpkins…any takers?
