I admit it, drawing is NOT one of my stronger areas. So instead of offering up some squiggly attempts at original pumpkin carving patterns I’m providing a list of links to some amazing resources of pumpkin patterns, stencils, and templates. From easy and classic to out of this world detailed, you are sure to find the perfect pumpkin pattern for your Halloween Jack O’Lantern with these links.
Better Homes and Gardens has some really cute stencils from basic to advanced. My favorite though? The flame pumpkins!

Pumpkin Pile has a great big pile of pumpkin patterns and all for free download. From traditional mummies and cats to celebrity portraits, you are sure to find something to fit your decorating theme.

Disney family has a nice handful of Disney designs that you can carve without getting a nasty letter from their copyright lawyers. Be sure to check out the simple but powerful Jack Skellington design.

Pumpkin Masters has some very simple but striking designs on their site in conjunction with promoting their carving tools. Admittedly I just go straight for the machete and Dremel to carve but the patterns are still quite good.
