Boo-tiful Pumpkin Carving Stencils

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Pumpkin
  • X-Acto Knife (scissors work ,too)
  • Sharpie
  • Printer

Boo-tiful Pumpkin Carving Stencils

STEP 1: Cut a circle around the stem of your pumpkin. Remove the top (save it!) and clean the seeds and goop out from inside.

STEP 2: Choose your favorite Aerie stencil from our downloadable pumpkin stencils file. Print the stencil on 8.5″ x 11″ paper.

STEP 3: With your X-Acto knife, cut around the dark outline, creating a stencil out of the printout.

STEP 4: Tape the stencil outline onto the area of your pumpkin you want to carve.

STEP 5: Using a sharpie, trace the inner lines of the stencil.

STEP 6: Using a pumpkin carving kit or any carving tool you want (we used smaller pottery tools), begin to cut out the outline of the stenciled drawing.

STEP 7: Be sure to follow the guidelines on each stencil, differentiating between the no-carve zones and etch carving areas.

STEP 5: Place a lit candle inside of your pumpkin and replace the top.

STEP 6: Show off your hard work!

BONUS TIPS

  • To keep your pumpkin fresh, spray it with a bleach/water mix.
  • Rub vaseline on the carved sections of pumpkin to keep mold away.
  • Use battery-powered candles to reduce hazard and provide more light.
