More CREATIVE and FREE Pumpkin Stencils!


It's pumpkin carving season and what would Halloween by without a Lionel Richie, Colonel Sanders, or Gary Coleman Jack-O-Lantern? Pretty boring.

This year was a tough one for my annual stencil making. My daughter was requesting a Princess and the Frog stencil - thanks to the commercials and billboards all around town for the upcoming movie. Oddly enough they don't make any pumpkin stencils for the new Princess so I created one for her.

An oldie I've always wanted to try was Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin. Now after creating it, I don't know if it'll live up to the neighbors expectations. They really liked the Lionel pumpkin last year and the Colonel Sanders one the year before that.
I have considered making the Colonel one again and improving upon it by putting real KFC fried chicken in it.
I'm still thinking about that one. It may be something I put together for a Halloween party.

Or I may just carve up the Balloon Boy. Although now looking at it, I may have to add his Dad getting arrested while he floats away...

Here are this year's stencils (click to download)

A big thanks to all of those who have emailed me directly with pictures of their pumpkins using my stencils. Even though I can't respond to all emails, I do appreciate you taking the time do to so and really enjoy seeing the pictures.

Well done, sir. I was wondering when these would surface this year.

I may just have to try one, although I am more known for butchering rather than carving.

Your new stencils are great, but I will probably always love Lionel the best. I think I might have double over with laughter if I had stumbled onto it while trick or treating.

You are so funny. I love Lionel. There's a blog award for you at mine if you'll have it?

Lionel could be Tom Sellek nect year.

I think I want to do a Yo Gabba Gabba one..

Bubble Boy Stencil. Perfect. Not as scarey of Lionel Richie.

Love the stencils! Just wouldn't be Halloween without Lionel. I like the chicken in the pumpkin idea...so carve a bucket in the pumpkin. Balloon boy..ha! Have you ever given KFC pieces out to trick or treaters?

Artist Unplugged -- I could give out KFC. But then less for me - so not a good idea...
