I think the Halloween season is so much fun! While I've never thought of myself as an artist, I'm becoming more and more interested in pumpkin carving.
I even had an amazing experience last week that taught me that you absolutely don't need to be an artist to make a really cool, unique pumpkin. You'll be reading about that pumpkin carving experience in a few days, so stay tuned!
My excitement over pumpkin carving is pretty apparent when you look through this site. You'll find my super popular article with over 700 free pumpkin carving patterns. How popular is it? It's been pinned over 350,000 times on Pinterest!
You'll also see my favorite new post, 130+ Disney pumpkin stencils!
But it's also no secret that I'm obsessed with the Hamilton musical.
I feel so lucky that I was able to see Hamilton on Broadway in July when I was in New York, and I've been a huge fan of Lin-Manuel Miranda for a long time before that!
So a few days ago I combined my obsessions to make some Hamilton pumpkin carving patterns!
I'm not a expert, so I promise that they're all very simple. You can curl out the outline with a linoleum cutter or you can punch the entire shape out with a strong serrated knife.
However you decide to use them, these Hamilton pumpkin carving stencils will make your pumpkin look unique and amazing. Best of all they're free and available right here!
I met with a real master pumpkin carver just last week and he said that graphite transfer paper is the best for tracing your pumpkin stencil onto your pumpkin.
These pumpkin carving tools would work great for your Hamilton pumpkin stencils:
You're also going to need safe lighting for inside your amazing pumpkin! The master pumpkin carver recommended one of these light bulbs on a cord for bringing out the brightest illumination from within the pumpkin. This one is only $3.99. It's made by 3M and I'm guessing it will 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:

Do you have a favorite Hamilton pumpkin carving pattern?
Mine is definitely the well-known part of the logo: Alexander Hamilton standing on his star. I love how it captures the spirit of the show. I also love the idea of it glowing brightly on my porch!
