Kids, be sure to have an adult help you with the carving tools!
What you will need:
- Ready-to-carve pumpkin
- Standard printer paper
- Soft graphite pencil
- Clear tape
- Ballpoint pen
- Black permanent marker
- Pumpkin carving tools
TIP: Carve Barrel’s face first, then carefully carve away the outer circle. If needed, secure his head with toothpicks.
- Download and print the template on standard printer paper. Scribble heavily all over the back of the template with a soft graphite pencil.
- Tape the template onto a ready-to-carve pumpkin that is clean and dry with the scribbled pencil side on the pumpkin.
- Trace over the template with the ballpoint pen to transfer the image onto the pumpkin. Define the template with a marker and then carve out the design.
