Free Pumpkin Carving Stencils

Be cool:  Don't stab vampires in the eye.

It’s funny. Despite all the pumpkin carving stencils that have been posted here, like the above vampire pumpkin stencil by the extremely talented Gary Pullin, there doesn’t seem to be as much interest in them as one might expect. After all, the article about Halloween coloring sheets quickly shot to the #1 spot not long after it was posted. Given the numerous requests for such stencils on other sites, it can’t be due to a lack of demand. No, it’s most likely due to the site’s selection of stencils being spread across several articles whose titles don’t reference pumpkin carving templates in any way. To fix this oversight, here are the rest of the stencils that have been posted here in the past:

Halloween Forum
Zombie Pumpkins
The Pumpkin Lady
Ultimate Pumpkin Stencils
Homestar Runner Pumpkin Stencils
Squidbillies Pumpkin Stencils
Arthropod Pumpkin Stencils
DLTK’s Holiday Crafts and Activities
Grasping Hand Pumpkin Stencils
Great Pumpkins: Crafty Carving for Halloween
Budget Celebrations: The Hostess Guide to Year-Round Entertaining on a Dime

You can find some great pumpkin carving tips in this classic article and these free Halloween window silhouettes can be potentially adapted into pumpkin designs. The other articles originally featuring those stencils are also worth a look due to all the other great Halloween goodies they contain.
