Reviewing Easy Pumpkin Carving Pages

Looking for last minute fun things to do for Halloween? How about easy pumpkin carving? The stores are still filled with pumpkins and you certainly have knives in your kitchen that can work great for carving. All you need are ideas for some interesting looks to carve. That's what Review This has for you today.

Pumpkin Carving Stencils


A Creative Desktop came up with some easy and fun printable stencils. All free, of course. Along
with instructions for how to print and use the stencils, this site gives you unlimited access to them. You are free to modify and alter them to suit your own tastes and needs.

Not just 40 different designs, but many funny faces as well. Be sure to click through to Page 2 to see lots more. There are some fun stencils, including a flying witch, a Star Wars Storm Trooper and the Ghostbusters logo. You are sue to find at least a few that you can try your own pumpkin carving talent on.

Carving Fun Pumpkins

More pumpkin carving fun comes from a page out of Better Homes and Garden. A simple trio of cute faces make up this page. All are easy for just about anyone to do. With these designs, the carving did not go all the way through the pumpkin. Instead, you have just the outer skin cut. Be sure to get a little paint to fill in the carving so you can get the bright contrast in color. Just like it shows in the image at the top of this page.

Free Stencils for Pumpkin Carving


Talk about fun and cute designs, Readers Digest online offers us some of those great easy stencils. They include some eerie faces, but also those darling emoticons just for fun.

My idea for this year when the grandgirls arrive for our Halloween fest is to have several different sizes. I'll let them pick out a stencil each, but I want to do this "how me?" goofy face myself.

A full 28 free designs are available for you to download and print. And all are fun and easy to do.

  3. Terrific resources for pumpkin carving. I just sent my two sons the link to the Creative Desktop page of printable stencils. One has a 12-year-old boy and one has a 5-year-old boy and the Ghostbusters Logo and the Star Wars Storm Trooper are perfect for the boys' interests. :) Thanks for the links.

  4. I love carving pumpkins but I'm terrible at it. Maybe these things will help me. I live with an artistic person who carves amazing pumpkins. It makes me feel inept. Maybe I'll catch up a bit this year! Thank you for sharing these sites.

  5. What's funny, is many years ago I discovered that people used stencils to create the intricate designs, lol, I thought my neighborhood just had a lot of artists! - some of the carvings can be pure pieces of pumpkin art
