200 Pumpkin carving ideas

Pick up a couple of inexpensive pumpkins and try you hand at a fun design with one of  these FREE pumpkin stencils — we’ve rounded up over 200 designs for just about every interest and level of difficulty:

  • The Texas Rangers fan club  has 4 FREE Texas Rangers and Texas themed FREE printable jack-o-lantern templates hereShow your support for our favorite baseball team!
  • Southern Living inspires with over 55 free pumpkin carving and decorating ideas – from elegant to jolly–to ready your house for the fall.
  • Better Homes and Gardens provides over 100  creative ideas and templates for decorating pumpkins hereThey even offer free customized stencils when you answer a short quiz based on your carving ability level, decorating desires, and project involvement needs.
  • Hesheys.com offers a wide variety of 30 different patterns from easy to advanced, with printable carving instructions.
  • DisneyFamily.com has over 30 templates including many Disney character patterns ~ Frozen’s Olaf, Mickey Mouse, Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Toy Story, Ferb and Doc McStuffins.
  • Nick Jr. offers 31 favorite Nick Jr. TV show character patterns like Dora the Explorer, Paw Patrol, and many others.
  • Lowes has created 8 downloadable designs to add fall flair to your front entry.  If you want something less halloween themed and more decorative, the Ginkgo leaf design is fantastic.
  • Kraft.com has 6 different pumpkin face patterns as well as an easy-to-follow guide for carving pumpkins, here.
  • PumpkinLady.com provides a wide selection of clever design templates, most for less than $.99. Click around the site for some great ideas.  You’ll also find 12 designs for FREE  here.

I recommend a couple of great tools for making your pumpkin carving project easier:

Pumpkin Carving

  • For the more serious pumpkin carving project, I recommend the Messermeister Pumpkin Carving Kit which includes a chef quality Pumpkin/Melon knife, scoop and carving tools in a storage case.  The special blades are designed to carve intricate designs beautifully (not for the kiddos, though)!   They’ll give a great grip when cutting and carving pumpkins and thick melons, too.

Pumpkin Carving

  • If you want one really good tool, I recommend getting a special Pumpkin/Melon Carving knife. We really like the Warren Pro Pumpkin Carving knife. It is well made with a walnut handle and comes with several sturdy replacement blades that have a fine saw like cutting action ~ they will not bend or break as with the cheaper versions.  Again, this is not safe for kids.
