How To Choose The Best Pumpkin For Carving Owl Stencils

When searching for the perfect pumpkin, remember a few things.

Some carving patterns are more suited for taller pumpkins and some for wider ones, so be sure to choose a design that will fit the shape of your pumpkin.

Also, check for ripeness. A ripe pumpkin is easier to carve. The skin of the pumpkin will have more even coloring and be smoother.

These will be the darker-colored ones. A pumpkin patch or a farm stand is a great source for finding pumpkins.

Instructions on how to use a PDF printable on a pumpkin for carving are at the bottom of the page.

Are you using a foam pumpkin for this instead of a real one? Then check out this detailed tutorial for how to carve a foam pumpkin using a stencil.

First, you’ll carve your pumpkin. The carving kits you see in stores or online are usually quite helpful. I like to use this kit and these extra carving tools.

And remember to save your pumpkin seeds to cook up for a delicious treat while carving.

These patterns are all free PDF files and are free to print. 

After choosing your favorite from the free owl pumpkin carving templates, click to print. The owl templates are designed to fit a standard-sized pumpkin, but if your pumpkin is very large or small, you can change the Scale in your print settings.

Change the number (where it says Scale) to 90% for smaller or 110% for larger. It’s hard to say. You may need to play with it.

Once you have your printed pdf stencil, tape it to the pumpkin. Blue painter’s tape is best for this.

The idea is that you will carve only the grey areas.

I like to use a thumbtack to create tiny holes first to outline the edges of the grey. 

Then use the tools from your carving kit to cut away everything in grey. 

When done, place a battery-powered tea light inside your carved owl pumpkin decoration. Then display it on your front porch for the neighborhood to see.
