Our Disney pumpkin stencils and our scary pumpkin stencils have been a big hit in the past, so we’ve created 6 12 more original pumpkin stencils found only on Fantasy Jr.! These pumpkin stencils are a little more silly and fun, and are also making it very difficult for me to choose what to carve this year on our own pumpkin!
Make these pumpkins last by carving them into artificial pumpkins!
Make sure you choose a stencil that matches the overall shape of your pumpkin. Choose taller carving designs for tall pumpkins, wider carving designs for short and fat pumpkins.
Print out the pumpkin stencils and make sure they will fit. If it is too small or too large, use your browser’s “Print Preview” setting and experiment with printing out the stencils at different percentage scale sizess.
Temporarily tape the stencil to your pumpkin, then use the tip of a nail to outline the black areas by poking holes through the paper into the skin of the pumpkin. Remove the paper and you have the outline of the stencil left on the pumpkin to carve. If you are old enough to use a razor blade, this is also a good way to transfer the design – just know that the razor won’t cut all the way through. This is just for transferring the design to the pumpkin surface.
Use a very sharp knife to cut out the black areas along the lines you transferred. Using a narrow, serrated, strong knife really does make pumpkin carving a ton easier.
