Trick or Treat Night Paper Pumpkin and Gourd Design Printables
Cultural theme stencils are adapted from existing, historical images of North American indiginous native totem pole figures, Japanese Kabuki theater masks, New Zealand Maori painted faces and tattoos and more.
Use these scary and funny images to make your own Halloween party invitations, place cards, party hats, and more for your next Halloween gathering or event.
Hundreds of traditional and unique Halloween patterns and pumpkin carving template designs for quality adult and child pumpkin sculpting fun. All images are geared for children and most are easy to print, carve, color or paint.
Cut out the traced pattens with special carving tools to make Halloween pumpkin carving easier, safer and a lot less messy. Print the paper patterns on thin to normal weight copy paper and tape each pattern onto the flesh of a ripe pumpkin. Trace the pumpkin pattern with a sharp pencil or pointed stick. For professional looking pumpkin carving techniques, use a battery operated carving tool to gently carve the pumpkin pattern.
Print your carving template design choices on thin to regular weight paper. The thinner the paper, the easier to trace the design through the paper into the flesh of your pumpkin (or watermelon).
Sculpting lightly into the rind of the pumpkin without going all the way through will create shadowy effects and give your design strange, bizarre, and more interesting possibilities.
