Slide 1 of 31: This Halloween, get creative with your jack-o-lantern and go beyond basic triangles for eyes using these pumpkin carving templates along with these pumpkin carving tips to create a work of art. Print the stencil you like, tape it on your hollowed-out pumpkin then "trace" the pattern's lines by poking pinholes over them. Pull the paper off, carve over the pinhole lines, and you'll have a show-stopping Jack-o-Lantern to display. Insider tip: in areas where intricate cuts are required, instead of struggling through tough pumpkin skin, etch or peel it away, exposing easier to cut flesh. If you would rather not carve your pumpkin, try one of these cute no-carve pumpkin ideas instead. What are you waiting for? These are the best pumpkin patches in every state, find yours, then go grab your gourd!
