25 Free Halloween Pumpkin Carving Templates
Here are 25 Free Halloween Pumpkin Carving Templates. All of these templates are fairly easy. My older daughter and I can get crazy creative when it comes to carving pumpkins and sometimes this can leave my younger one feeling a bit left out. We decided to create some fun, yet easy templates that can be carved at a beginner level. Have fun with the kiddos by making scary or even silly Halloween pumpkins this year!

Print out your template. (Tip: If your template is too big you can always adjust the side in your printer settings zoom mode to have it print smaller to fit your pumpkin)
Tape your template to your pumpkin. At this point your pumpkin should already be hollowed and ready for carving.
Use a pumpkin carving tool (the one with the pointed need tip edge) and start poking holes to outline your design.
After you have completed poking all the holes around your design, use the knife like pumpkin carving tool to start making your cuts around the poked holes. (Tip: those holes help keep your cuts in line with your design)
How to Preserve your Halloween Carved Pumpkin
Once your pumpkin is complete you will want to preserve the cut pumpkin from bacteria and mold. To do this simply spray it with a bleach solution (1 tablespoon of bleach to 1 quart of water). Let that solution completely dry for about 30 minutes. Next, rub all of the carved and cut inside surfaces with petroleum jelly. This will reduce dehydration and keep it from rotting before Halloween. This process has helped preserve my pumpkin for just a little bit over a week.
Tip: Try not to put your pumpkin in direct sunlight. Cool shaded place is best.
