Download and print off these jack-o’-lantern stencils, and decorate your front porch or barn.
- Prep your pumpkin by scooping out the seeds. Then choose a stencil design below that you’d like to use. Click on one of the images to download the full-sized stencil.
- Print the page, then tape or pin it to your pumpkin. Put the pins on the edge of the image so you don’t have extra holes in your pumpkin.
- Use a pushpin or the sharp point of a knife to poke holes along the edge of the design so that when you remove the stencil, you will still have an outline visible on the face of the pumpkin. Poke the holes 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch apart. Don’t leave out any fun details! Tip: Carve the small details first, then move on to the larger sections.
- To create a final result with multiple tones, carve the outer skin from the pumpkin, but leave just enough of the white flesh in tact to allow some light to pass through. This can be tricky, so carve carefully!
