Pumpkin Carving Templates & Cookie Cutter Pumpkins!


 


 

I’ve seen lots of cute pumpkin carving templates online this week.  We are getting our pumpkins this weekend, and plan on carving next week.  I thought I’d share with you what I’ve found!  I’m particularly interested in making cookie cutter pumpkins like those in the image above.  My kiddos are still pretty little, so I think a cookie cutter is a better option than a carving knife.  If you are interested in trying out a cookie cutter pumpkin I’ve included a couple of tips below that I’ll be following.  If you’d rather carve your pumpkin I’ve included cute templates below.

Love this Topiary!!

The thoughts of trying to carve all those circles makes my eyes cross. I’m loving the cookie cutter technique!! Looks easy enough!

Cookie Cutter Pumpkins

  • You’ll want to use small sturdy cookie cutters preferably made out of stainless steel.
  • Prepare the pumpkin like you normally would to carve.  (Cut circle around stem, and clean out the insides)
  • Hold a cookie cutter firmly on the outside of the pumpkin
  • Use a rubber mallet or some other kind of hard surface to tap the cookie cutter through the skin of the pumpkin.
  • Repeat in a pattern of your choice, mix it up by using different shapes and sizes.
  • Insert candle, light and enjoy!
