First, choose one of our free pumpkin templates, which you will find in the picture gallery below. All you need is, of course, a pumpkin, a big and a small, sharp knife, a spoon and a pen to draw your face. You can also find a pumpkin carving set on the market, which you can also use. But you must prepare the pumpkin beforehand. Cut off a lid with a little effort. Simply by hand or with a spoon you can remove the inside. With it you can cook a super delicious soup 🙂

The creativity is announced here

First, press the selected template. If you use different parts from multiple templates, it is best to cut them out first. Place these on the pumpkin and fix it in place with adhesive tape. As an indication, use a felt-tip pen. A non-permanent pen can also be used. Of course, if you want to paint something on your pumpkin, you can do it without a template. But do not paint small holes, as these are not easy to see and difficult to carve.

Now comes the cutting

Here you need a sharp and stable saw blade. First, carefully cut out the large holes after the template. You can use angled cutting tool to cut out the nose. The details have to be worked out with the saw blade. So that your pumpkin remains stable. Leave the cut pieces still in the pumpkin until you cut out all the pieces. Only at the end can you remove the cut out elements from the pumpkin.

Put candles, tealights or fairy lights in the pumpkin

Which pumpkins can you use?

Of course, you can use all the pumpkins you have and those carved. Recommended is to avoid the thin and long pumpkins, they must be best round. The big squashes are also delicious. If there is not much time until Halloween, you can find the so-called Halloween pumpkin (Jack O’Latern) in almost every supermarket. Generally, the bigger, the better! A tip from us: so that your Halloween pumpkin stays fresh longer, you can do it with a hair spray inside and out   Spray.
