Carve a pumpkin for Halloween

Halloween is at our doorstep. In our little workshop, we would like to show you how simple it is to make a Halloween pumpkin. As the Wonderliner sticks to many surfaces, you can easily use it to draw the outlines of the scary face on the pumpkin.


An evenly grown pumpkin is especially well-suited for Halloween.

You need:

A pumpkin, templates of motive (download template), a big and a small kitchen knife, pins, a small candle, a tablespoon, a pair of scissors, a black Wonderliner.


All these motives can be downloaded.

 

Choose a motive


The download template can be pinned directly on the pumpkin.

Choose a motive and print it out. Cut out the template and pin it on the pumpkin.

Copying the motive


The Wonderliner sticks to many surfaces.

Trace the outlines of your favorite motive with the Wonderliner, this way you can copy your chosen scary face to the pumpkin.

Cut the pumpkin open


Open the pumpkin carefully with a big knife.

Attention: Children should always be supervised by an adult when working!
Now carefully cut the pumpkin open with a large kitchen knife. First, cut off the "lid", so the pumpkin can be carved out better.

Carving out the pumpkin


The pumpkin is cut open and carved out.

After taking off the lid, you have to carve out the pumpkin with a big spoon. The pumpkin seeds can be taken out, dried and used again next year.

The finishing touch


Finally, eyes, nose and mouth can be cut out of the pumpkin.

After the inside of the pumpkin is completely removed, cut out the eyes, nose and mouth. Bit by bit, remove the single parts and so the pumpkin receives its final face.

Set it up and get the creeps


The creepy Jack O’Lantern.

Finally, place a small candle in the pumpkin and close it with the lid. Set the pumpkin in a dark corner and it will give a spooky glow in the dark!
