Beware the walkers. In this zombie pumpkin stencil, a gnarled hand a la The Walking Dead reaches to a full moon. Scrape some dried grasses around the base of the hand for a three-dimensional effect.

Werewolf Pumpkin Stencil
Have a howlingly fun Halloween with a werewolf carved into a full moon. The pumpkin carving patterns indicate where you'll cut away the moon from your pumpkin, leaving the werewolf's snarling profile in relief. For added drama, spray-paint your pumpkin black before carving your design.

Dragon Pumpkin Stencil
Channel your inner khaleesi and let actual fire (in the form of a candle) glow from the mouth of this spiky dragon pumpkin stencil. Carve the dragon's head and etch a few details, including the scaly stomach and imposing wings, to make a symbol worthy of the House Targaryen on Game of Thrones.

Phoenix Pumpkin Stencil
Take flight with a Harry Potter-inspired pumpkin in the form of Dumbledore's reborn phoenix—the mythical bird that rises from the ashes. The pumpkin carving patterns explain how its feathered wings are made by scraping the surface of the pumpkin, while the body is set aglow when you carve it out of an extra-wide pumpkin.

Vampire Pumpkin Stencil
Let this fanged creature haunt your Halloween steps this holiday. He's extra-spooky when carved out of a black pumpkin (simply paint the pumpkin before you start), but he'd still look menacing in a large orange pumpkin. Download the free pumpkin carving stencils to get started.
