Pumpkin Carving

Dress up your home with creative Halloween pumpkin ideas using free pumpkin stencils, painted pumpkins, and unique pumpkin decorating tips. Our collection of free Halloween pumpkin carving stencils includes silly and scary pumpkin faces, classic Halloween icons (think Frankenstein, werewolves, and vampires), sophisticated fall motif patterns, and dozens more Halloween stencil ideas. One of our most popular collections is our dog-breed pumpkin stencils, featuring carving patterns for two dozen puppy faces. If you're still questioning what to carve, take our Halloween pumpkin carving quiz to find your perfect pattern. As an alternative, put the carving kit down in favor of painted Halloween pumpkins. These low-mess ideas help you transform your pumpkins from basic gourds into candy corn, bats and cats, caterpillars, and more. Easy painted silhouettes are always a favorite -- try painting a crow on your pumpkin to scare the trick-or-treaters. Need more instruction?
