So easy you can carve pumpkin with templates
Whether it’s a spooky grimace, an evil witch or a fun, playful motif, you can create really great Halloween pumpkins with the right template. And for those of us who can’t paint at all, this is a great help. But how to transfer the template to the pumpkin? We summarize the simple steps, as well as a few useful bonus tips, below.
First, scroll through our image gallery and choose a template. Download the template and print it out. Then proceed as follows:
- Wash the pumpkin and pat dry.
- Remove the lid and scoop out the insides. Tip: Instead of discarding the pumpkin seeds along with the pulp, you can recycle them while trying out different recipes!
- Attach the template to the pumpkin with tape or carefully with pins.
- Poke several holes along the lines with a thick needle.
- Remove the template.
- Carve the pumpkin according to the pre-made pattern.
Note: Our templates have the black parts removed. For an even more interesting effect, you can also engrave some parts of the designs by removing only the top part of the pumpkin shell.
