Halloween Pumpkin Templates

Recommended Posts

Spent some time making templates, thought I'd share since I'm not going to carve all of them.

If you decide to use one of these, please post a picture of your pumpkin after you're done carving!

Continuing on the Alice in Wonderland theme, I present the Cheshire Cat.

I think I'll try Alice next, the Mad Hatter and maybe a few momeraths. If you have any character requests (and have a good image to convert!), please post them.

Since I am from a country that doesn't celebrate halloween, I am only astonished by the amount of awesome carvings flood the internet around the holiday. It's a really nice work!

How does that carving actually work?

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Well, pumpkins grow hollow with lots of seeds and gunk on the inside. So the first step is to cut into the top at an angle, in order to remove the stem and make a lid.

 

Then, you'd scrape around the insides in order to remove the seeds and gunk, and further hollow out the inside.

 

I like to then pick the surface that I'm going to carve, and further scrape the wall of that area on the inside so it's about 1/2 - 1" thick (1-3 cm thick). This makes doing detailed work easy.

 

The next step is to take one of these templates, print it out (scale it to match the pumpkin), and cut it into a few large sections and pin it to the pumpkin. This is to make putting a flat piece of paper on a curve much easier.

 

Finally, you take a knife (I used an exacto knife), poke a hole through one of the light areas on the template. Then you take a fine saw and saw out the area. Its best to work from the middle of the template to the outside, doing the small parts first.

 

The cat that I posted took about 4 hours to carve, so it's pretty intricate work. Some people will use dremels (hand held rotary tool with many attachments), but I haven't tried that yet.

 

Last thing is when carving a pumpkin, you can have 4 different shades. Black is where you don't carve, Yellow is where you carve. Light orange is where you scrape the skin off the pumpkin in that area, and dark orange is where you scrape the wall out from underneath leaving the skin (very difficult).

Sorry for the necro, but I've had time to make a couple more templates. Unfortunately I'll be traveling for work at the end of October, so I don't think I'll be able to carve either of them.

 

Also, if you have a suggestion for a character I should do next, let me know!
