The Free Pumpkin Carving Stencils You Need To Try This Year

It’s time to step up your jack-o-lantern game.


If you thought carving a pumpkin was as simple as grabbing a gourd, a knife and hacking away, we wouldn’t say you were wrong, but we would say you’re missing out.

The classic jack-o-lantern gets a serious upgrade with the carving stencils below, provided by Better Homes & Gardens, your one-stop shop for some of the greatest pumpkin carving designs on the Internet. 

“People don’t realize they’ve been carving their pumpkins all wrong!” said Katherine Parker, Senior Digital Editor for Holidays. Besides carving the same ol’ design each year, most people’s mistake is starting at the wrong end.

“Instead of starting at the top, carve a hole in the bottom of the pumpkin. It will sit straight and stable, and you won’t find yourself struggling to get that stem back on. You can place the pumpkin over a candle instead having to maneuver it in from the top.”

Regardless of the design you choose below, make sure to roast those pumpkin seeds.
