Here are some helpful Pumpkin Carving Tips to help bring your Halloween Masterpiece to LIFE! (Link to the Pumpkin Carving Download is below the Tips.)

Pumpkin Carving Tips #1
Pick out a great pumpkin!
Tip:Choosing a pumpkin with smooth skin, rather than deep ridges, will make applying a pattern so much easier! More bumps equal more hassle!
Pumpkin Carving Tips #4
Tape the pattern to the pumpkin while overlapping the tears.
Tip:Having trouble putting on the pattern? Before you tape it down, make several tears, about three inches apart, all around the outside edge of the pattern. When you tape it down, this will make the pattern form to your pumpkins rounded shape.
Pumpkin Carving Tips #7
Rub some white flour over the dots and watch the magic happen! Now you’re ready to carve!
Tip:If you’re having trouble viewing your poked out pattern, rub a little flour, cornstarch or baby powder into the dots. The dots will turn bright white and your design will practically pop off the pumpkin!

Dragon Strike – Pumpkin Carving Pattern

Dragon Strike Pumpkin Carving Pattern

Dragons! As children, they are perhaps the first creature to capture our imaginations. We battle them. Befriend them. Seek the treasures they guard. 

Dragons! As children, they are perhaps the first creature to capture our imaginations. We battle them. Befriend them. Seek the treasures they guard. And no one can tell us they don’t exist!

Do I believe in dragons? Well, do I believe in unicorns? The answer to both is a resounding, “Yes!” Don’t you? Now, I can’t really say that I believe in tales of magical giant flying lizards that shoot lasers from their eyes, burn up towns in a single fiery breath, and carry away beautiful princesses. But dragons?

Who’s to say they were not real, once upon a time? All great legends have their basis in truth. It’s the hint of reality that makes us believe them! Giant lizards? Yes. Dinosaurs did exist (and, looking at crocodiles today, I’d say that maybe they still do!). Did they fly? Yes, some could (Pterodactyls, anyone?). But breathing fire? Hmmmm.

I think that it could be true! After all, scientists have discovered that bombardier beetles have two chambers inside that contain reactants that, when expelled, combine to create a corrosive substance to kill their enemies. Wowsers! So, the idea of a creature that could shoot out fire? Well, it’s possible! And that’s enough for me to have hope that dragons were, indeed, real!

Pro Tips: This glowing dragon is a Halloween favorite, and the right lighting makes his eyes glow like embers!

  1. Teeth. Take. Time. However, what’s important to make accurate are the fangs. As for all the smaller teeth, if you show a lot of sharp points, don’t be too worried about following the pattern exactly. (After all, do any of us really know how many teeth a dragon has?)
  2. It will look just fine if you want to make the spikes along the back of the dragons back a little larger, but make sure they aren’t larger than the dragon’s horns or you will never notice those, and we want this dragon to look scary.

Arlo – Pumpkin Carving Pattern

Arlo Pumpkin Carving Pattern

Arlo is a great pattern for beginners and pros alike because it’s simple! Despite its simplicity, if you carve a stack of different, basic patterns your neighbors will ooh and ahh over your display!

Remember your first Jack o’lantern? Did a family member carve it or were you sent outside, with the “mess,” to try it on your own?

Arlo is a great pattern for beginners and pros alike because it’s simple! Despite its simplicity, if you carve a stack of different, basic patterns your neighbors will ooh and ahh over your display! One is sweet by itself, but a stack is spectacular!

The wonderful thing about simple patterns is that you are free to change it and create a different personality. Arlo’s nose has nostrils, but you could just keep the nose as a smooth oval shape and leave those off altogether. Alternatively, you could keep them but make them bigger, which will make him look like his nostrils are flared!

But perhaps Arlo’s best features are those big bucky teeth! Obviously, he’s missing a few of those because of eating one too many pieces of candy and not brushing those chompers as well as he should! (Arlo is definitely not the child of a dentist!) However, you could add a few more teeth if you like, or just leave the one cut out tooth outside the line of his mouth and just one inside. You get to decide how many teeth Arlo has!

Want to have a little more fun? Get really creative! How about adding just a simple “ letter C shape” carved out on either side of the pumpkin, giving Arlo some ears? Or, use a small thin nail to poke out a pile of freckles on both cheeks, or even just a scattered few. How about a bow tie? Or give him a startled look and add some eyebrows as if he just got a scary surprise? Or, add a few long eyelashes to each eye and Arlo will look like Arla! You’re the artist now…give this pattern your own spin!

Abner – Pumpkin Carving Pattern

Abner Pumpkin Carving Pattern

Do you know who carves the best Jack o’lanterns? Kids! Kids are always make the best pumpkin carvers!

Jack o’lanterns symbolize Halloween more than anything else. Crisp, clean lines accent an irresistible burst of color! Scary or sweet, they are sure to carve a smile on you as well!

Do you know who carves the best Jack o’lanterns? Kids! Kids are always make the best pumpkin carvers! Let Moms and Dads or the Grandparents buy the pumpkins, but pass the carving saws over to the kids. So, why is this?

Kids don’t care about perfection…about getting every line right or the eyes “just so.” Adults meticulously poke and trace the pattern onto a pumpkin, slowly carve their lines, and then spend hours shaving off a hair’s breadth of pumpkin goo until their carving is perfect. But kids? Hand them a marker and then stand back. Drawing a face is over in seconds, if they even bother to draw one. Kids GO FOR IT!

Perfection is overrated. Kids know that it’s not about carving the perfect pumpkin…it’s about having perfect moments of fun. When it comes to pumpkin carving, kids live in the moment! It’s about the senses…the crunch of leaves underfoot, the scent of chimney smoke in the air, removing the cool slimy goo inside a pumpkin, hiding the seeds we roast and savor later.

Know this: it’s not about carving the perfect Jack o’lantern. Its about carving out fun times with family and friends. If you do that, trust me, your carving will turn out just perfect for you, despite the crooked smiles!

Pro Tip: Always start in the center to begin carving out pieces, not the outside areas. This way, your carving hand, that often rests on the pumpkin’s shell while sawing, won’t put pressure on the delicate areas you’ve already carved. This greatly lessens the chances of accidentally breaking your carving.

And don’t be afraid to get creative! This pattern has Abner’s eyes almost crossed, but you can place the pupils anywhere you want to make him look to the side or up, or add some long eyelashes to make Abner looks like an Agnes. Whatever you do? Just have fun!
