Disney pumpkin stencils
Who's getting ready for Halloween? I'm feeling like I'm the most prepared that I've ever been for this holiday.
My kids have their costumes. We have a plan for where they're going to trick-or-treat. I haven't made any Halloween party foods yet, but there's still time!

A few years ago I put together a post with over 700 free pumpkin carving patterns. I didn't know it when I published it, but that article has been one of the most popular ones on the site ever. It's been pinned over 350,000 times on Pinterest! By the way, are you following me on Pinterest yet?
See that post here:
I think it's because of that article that I'm more interested than ever in unique pumpkin designs and patterns! Of course, I love Disney, and I started seeing an array of unique Disney pumpkin stencils.
There really wasn't an easy place where I could find all of them, so I'm making one. This is now the ultimate place to find Disney pumpkin stencils! I have over 130 of them for you.

My #1 advice before you start using these Disney pumpkin stencils: make sure you have the right pumpkin carving tools for the job.
I worked with a real master pumpkin carver last year and he said that graphite transfer paper is the best for tracing your pumpkin stencil onto your pumpkin.
These pumpkin carving tools would also work great for your Disney pumpkin stencils:
Even after all that advice I'm so in love with my Cricut smart cutter I'll probably use it to cut out our Disney pumpkin pattern this year. Read my Cricut Explore Air 2 review to see why I love it so much!
You're also going to need safe lighting for inside your amazing Disney pumpkin! The master pumpkin carver recommended a light bulb on a cord for the brightest illumination from within the pumpkin. This one is only $3.99 and it should last for several years!
If you don't have an outlet or if you'd rather go the battery-operated route, here are more options for lighting your pumpkin:

How to use printable pumpkin carving patterns
1. Clean your pumpkin inside and out.
Cut a “door” between 6 and 8 inches square in the back of your pumpkin instead of removing the stem. Scrape out the pulp and seeds, then use an antibacterial wipe to clean the outside.
2. Print your template and review it.
Print out your favorite Disney pumpkin stencil, read any instructions on it and note if there are any grey, striped or cross-hatched sections on it. Those are the areas you'll need to scrape instead of cut all the way through.
3. Trace, Transfer and Trace.
Put your stencil over a sheet of graphite transfer paper and pin it to your pumpkin. Use a ballpoint pen to trace firmly over all the lines of your stencil. This will transfer your stencil to your pumpkin.
4. Scrape the grey areas.
Remove the template and the carbon paper and trace over all carbon lines with your Sharpie.
If there are grey or marked areas in your pumpkin design, scrape the top layers of the pumpkin off without cutting all the way through the flesh. This will allow some light through without the same intensity as the fully cut parts.
5. Carve your pumpkin.
Use your sharp, pointed knife to cut along the lines you marked on your pumpkin.
6. Clean the outside of your pumpkin.
Use a wipe to clean the leftover Sharpie or carbon transfer residue from your carved pumpkin.
7. Light your pumpkin.
