  • Download the free printable pumpkin stencils. Hint: You can scale these directly in your printer dialog settings on the screen, so they fit your pumpkin better.
  • Print the pattern onto regular copy paper.
  • Tape the printed pattern onto the pumpkin.
  • Use a thumbtack to puncture the top layer of skin.
  • If the holes are too light when you remove the paper, use a ballpoint pen or a permanent marker to trace them.
  • Only cut the grey areas.

Pumpkin Carving Tips!

  • You can cut the bottom of the pumpkin instead of the top. That way, you won’t see the cut line, and you can light the candle easily and just place the pumpkin over the top.
  • If you’re wondering what pumpkin carving tool to use, a pumpkin carving kit is very helpful. You can also just use a kitchen knife and linoleum cutter.
  • A pumpkin with a wide base can be helpful because it will sit easily on your front porch and not easily get knocked off.
  • A great way to make carved pumpkins last longer is to keep them out of direct sunlight.
  • Coat the inside of the pumpkin with petroleum jelly to delay rotting.
  • Place your pumpkin on the front porch for all the kids to see.

And remember, a little patience will go a long way.
