What It Is
Pumpkin Masters offers a variety of different ways (some don't even involve carving!) to decorate your Halloween pumpkins this year.
The Pumpkin Masters Kids Glow in the Dark Decorating Transfers retails for about $2.99. It comes with two transfer sheets that have different designs on them. Cut out the design you want to use and place it facedown on the pumpkin surface. Use a wet cloth or sponge and apply even pressure for about 60 seconds to the transfer paper backing. Remove the cloth and the paper backing to reveal the design on the pumpkin.
The Falloween Decorating Transfers kit retails for $2.99. It includes two transfer sheets with Halloween-themed and Thanksgiving-themed designs so that you can display pumpkins all season long. Cut out the design you want to use and place it facedown on the pumpkin surface. Use a wet cloth or sponge and apply even pressure for about 60 seconds to the transfer paper backing. Remove the cloth and the paper backing to reveal the design on the pumpkin.
The Falloween Pumpkin Decorating Kit retails for $6.99. It lets you design and display pumpkins all season long. The kit includes four 12-inch ribbons, a pouch of push-in beads, a sheet of self-adhesive gems, a pouch of silver glitter, and a black glitter pen.
The Pumpkin Masters Spooky Stares Carving and Lighting Kit retails for $6.99. Carve a face into your pumpkin using the included pattern, then insert the light-up eyes and turn them on. The eyes will blink or stay steady. The kit includes one pair of light-up eyes, a saw, a poker, a scraper scoop, a pattern sheet, and two AAA batteries.
The Pumpkin Blacklight kit retails for $5.99. It comes with a battery-operated UV light, a roller, and glow-in-the-dark paint. Paint directly onto the pumpkin surface or dry carved edges. Position the UV light inside the pumpkin. In a darkened room, the painted surfaces will glow in the ultraviolet light. Turn off the UV light and the painted surfaces will glow in the dark. Two AAA batteries are required but not included.
The Paint & Carve Pumpkin Decorating Kit retails for $6.99. It includes four patterns, two stencil sheets, a saw, a scraper scoop, a pouch of silver push-in tacks, silver and black paint tubes, and two paintbrushes. Carve out the pattern and paint, then illuminate from within the pumpkin with a battery-operated light, which is not included.
Another kit for kids is the Pumpkin Masters Kids Glow in the Dark Carving Kit. It retails for $5.99 and includes six patterns, two bottles of glow-in-the-dark paint, a roller, a saw, a scraper scoop, and a poker. Kids choose their design, carve it, paint, and illuminate the pumpkin with a pumpkin light, which is sold separately.
The Surface Carving Kit retails for $5.99 and includes a pattern book, three carving tips, a tool, and a pounce wheel. Choose your pattern, carve it, and display.
If you already have the tools, you can purchase the Spooktacular Scenes or the Creature Features Pumpkin Carving Pattern Books. Each retails for $2.99 and include a variety of different patterns that you attach to the pumpkin to carve.
Is It Fun?
The Pumpkin Masters kits make it very easy to carve and decorate a pumpkin. The tools in the kit are safer than kitchen knives, and the battery-operated lights are safer than candles. With kits for kids and adults, there is something for every pumpkin carving skill level.
