How To Use The Witch Pumpkin Carving Stencils

You don’t need to spend much time searching for the perfect pumpkin.

But you do want to consider the size and shape of the pumpkin based on the witch pattern you picked out.

If your design is big, you’ll need a larger pumpkin. If it’s a taller pattern, go for a taller pumpkin.

After you have removed the pumpkin seeds and pulp from the inside of the pumpkin. It’s time to work with the stencil.

I demonstrated this on a foam pumpkin, but make sure if you use a real pumpkin to cut the top and clean out the pulp first.

Here’s a great tutorial for learning how to carve a foam pumpkin, using a pdf pattern.

  • Print the witch pumpkin pattern and scale it bigger or smaller if necessary to fit the size of your pumpkin.
  • Now secure the stencil pattern to the pumpkin. One of the best ways I’ve found to do this is by making small tears across the sides and top of the paper to help bend the paper around the pumpkin.
  • Then, tape the corners and maybe a small piece at the top and bottom.

  • Use a thumbtack to trace the outlines of the pattern. Press the pin in and out to punch hole marks into the pumpkin’s skin. Remember, you will be carving the grey areas.
  • After tracing the lines, remove the paper. Sometimes it can be challenging to see the holes, so I like to take a ballpoint pen or a fine point sharpie and re-trace over the holes. 

And that’s it. You are ready to carve.

When you’re done carving your witch pumpkin, pop in a tea light candle, and place your witchy Halloween pumpkin on the front porch for everyone to see.
