POSSIBLY THE EASIEST PUMPKIN CARVING TEMPLATE IN THE WORLD (FREE for download here!)

No Halloween decor up yet? No time? No pumpkin carving kit/fancy knives/special tools? No previous pumpkin carving experience? No idea where to start?
No worries!

This is the Jack-o’-Lantern design you’ve been looking for!

My husband, our two and a half year-old toddler and I decided to do a last-minute, first time (!) pumpkin carving on the weekend… and within 30 minutes we’d gone out, found and bought a pumpkin, prepared possibly the most simple template EVER, cleaned and carved the pumpkin and lit the tea light candle inside. It really was that simple!

And the secret to this super-fast, super-easy DIY project?
This Jack’s face design contains NO curves and requires minimal cuts… but, as you will hopefully agree, it does not lack personality.
Straight lines are a cinch to cut (believe me, we only had one 9 year-old, medium-sized, non-serrated edge knife from IKEA to work with!).
Despite the easy, straight cuts, the curved nature of the pumpkin’s form helps create the illusion of curves within the facial features from certain angles. The simplicity of the design is perfect for smaller pumpkins (such as the one we bought) too.

  1. Ah, now this is just my speed! I’m always over-ambitious in my jack-o-lantern designs and manage to damage something/myself in the process. Not to mention, I always wait until the last minute (just like this year again) so it’s a rush to figure out what to do. Thanks for sharing this simple fix!

    • Hi Hannah! Thanks so much!
      I have never tried pumpkin carving before… but I imagine that I am the sort that’s prone to over-complication (and the odd boo-boo!) too 😀 Really happy you like this one 🙂 I am planning on trying the same design on a bell pepper (for Halloween dinner tomorrow) 🙂
