Super Rad Pumpkin Carving Stencils

I'm a huge pumpkin carving lover - Growing up it was a big deal in our house. My dad showed my brother & I how to scoop out the seeds, transfer the stencil, then we watched as he carefully took a Michael Myers sized kitchen knife to carve our pumpkin. Ah memories... :)

It's really no surprise that I continue this tradition now - putting on a scary movie, eating some candy and carving away. What is surprising is how late I've waited this year to start. In fact, we don't even have a pumpkin yet! Normally, I love the traditional templates like a mummy, spooky spider or a haunted house. I just think that they're more in the spirit of Halloween. However, I found some super fun and unique stencils that just tickle my fancy. If you're like me and I haven't started yet - maybe one of these options will inspire you to head out to your nearest pumpkin patch!

who wouldn't want a Ryan Gosling pumpkin glowing in their house.. I wouldn't complain about that! :)

Ariel has always been, and will continue to be, my favorite Disney Princess. The Little Mermaid pumpkin stencil would be any little girl's favorite!

I'm a huge Owl fan - this cutesy guy would look so adorable on a front stoop!

When I saw these Dog Carving Templates, I'm not going to lie. I went bananas. Then when I saw they have a Jack Russell option, I went even more bananas. Love, Love, LOVE! See if they have your pet here.

Okay, I couldn't resist a scary Jack Nicholson carving - The Shining's most famous scene on an orange-lit pumpkin? Super Awesome!

  1. NICE! I want to see pics of your final project! Especially if you tackle Ryan Gosling.


  2. So fun! I think the only way I might go see 50 Shades of Grey in theaters is if Ryan Gosling is Christian Grey.

  3. Ariel is my favorite too! Every year I say I'm gonna do an Ariel pumpkin, but I can never find the stencil and I'm not talented enough to do it freehanded, haha.


  4. Love these! I'd like a pumpkin with Ryan Gosling on it please :)

  5. I bought a seashell necklace from the Halloween store yesterday! I was part of the Ariel costume lol. We will totally be doing an Ariel pumpkin next year.
