My sister asked me to help her make a template to carve my niece a Curious George pumpkin for Halloween. Here’s what I came up with for her. I can’t wait to see the finished product. Next I’m going to work on a Snoopy one for Madison and I’ll add it when I’m finished. I need to see what my other two want for their pumpkins this year.
I use a pumpkin carving kit sold at pretty much any store this time of the year. Using the hole punching tool from the kit, punch small holes along the outlines of the George template. Cut the template out using the small pumpkin saw and remove the slices of pumpkin to reveal George’s face. Click here for more detailed instructions on using pumpkin carving templates and stencils.
Be sure to to cut out the small pieces ( like the nose and eyes) before moving onto the larger areas.
