How to Use Pumpkin Carving Stencils
- Download the pumpkin carving stencils, print on regular copy paper.
- Cut out the dark areas and then use the remaining white paper as a stencil.
- Trace area with a Sharpie marker to make lines easy to see. (When carving, cut on the line so the Sharpie marker is removed.)
- If you don’t want to spend the time cutting out the dark areas, place the stencil on the pumpkin and use a thumbtack to piece the edge of the design.

How do you make a carved pumpkin last longer?
You might ask how do I keep my carved pumpkin from rotting. Dip or spray it with a solution of three gallons water and 3 tablespoons bleach or make a natural spray with peppermint essential oil. Mix about 10 drops of peppermint oil, one cup of water or vinegar and a teaspoon of liquid soap to help keep mold at bay. Peppermint has anti-fungal properties, which will help keep fungus and mold away.
