Pumpkin Carving Stencils - Set of 36

Because there are so many, I’ve broken them down into 3 separate sets. Unfortunately, I had to save them in .zip files in order to upload them for you – there ARE SO MANY!

So, when you click the image to download, you will be prompted to save the file – just go ahead and choose your saving location and click OK.

Then, just head to the file and right click on the compressed folder – choose “Extract All” and hit okay again. Your files should unzip and open right up – Easy Peasy!

(If you have any trouble, feel free to hit the “CONTACT” link above and send me a message!)

So, let’s get started, shall we?! I know you just want the good stuff…

Okay, so now you have your chosen pumpkin carving stencils…

What the Heck Do You Do With Them?

Oh, you’re going to love this…IT’S SO EASY!

Step One:

Print the pumpkin stencils of your choice.

Each page is set to automatically print at 8.5″ x 11″ (letter size), but if you have smaller pumpkins, just change your settings to print on 5.5″ x 8.5″ (half-letter) instead.

Step Two:

Attach the stencil to your pumpkin.

We usually just take 4 toothpicks and stick them through each corner of the paper to keep it steady on the pumpkin. But, you could also use thumbtacks, hairpins, nails…whatever works to keep the paper still.

Step Three:

Use a toothpick to poke a “trace line” around the black areas on the pumpkin carving stencils.

Step Four:

Use sharp knives or a pumpkin carving kit (*) to cut out the areas inside your trace lines.

Here’s a fancy carving tool set (*) for the more advanced pumpkin carver!

That’s It! You just made the coolest Jack O’ Lanterns in town!

I hope you had a great time!
