Looking for a Venom pumpkin carving stencil? You're in the right place! We have the best free printable Spider-Man, Carnage and Venom pumpkin patterns for a terrifying Halloween jack o lantern!
My son loves Venom. Never mind that he hasn't seen any of the movies and he's only read a just a few pages of some of the comics. His mind is set and Venom is his favorite Marvel character.
Personally, I think the character of Venom is scary, and the Venom movies, both Venom and Venom: Let There be Carnage, look terrifying. The part that interests me is that the character is part of the Spider-Man universe, but…I'm a wimp. I choose to sit out on any and all horror movies, even if it is a Marvel horror movie.
Still, like my Squid Game pumpkin carving ideas, I don't have to love the subject matter to give you exactly what you're looking for. We're crazy about pumpkin stencils here, and I see plenty of people looking for Venom pumpkin ideas when they land on our page with over 700 free pumpkin carving stencils.
Now I'm excited to add some great Venom pumpkins to our collection of Halloween jack o lantern ideas!

How to use a printable pumpkin carving stencil
I talk about this a lot: I was lucky enough to attend a How to Carve a Pumpkin class with a professional pumpkin carver. I learned how to quickly and easily use a stencil for a professional looking pumpkin.
You can click the above link to see more details of the class I took, but I'm also sharing the quick tips that will make anyone better pumpkin carver, even if you've never used a stencil, template or printable before!
Tools and supplies
Before you start you'll need a few tools (not a cheap pumpkin carving kit). Nothing is expensive, so you should think of it like putting together your own kit that will last for years after this Halloween.
I recommend buying a small plastic storage tote for all the below supplies. Then you can pack it away with your Halloween decorations and you'll be ready for your pumpkin next year.
Tip: I recommend buying a small plastic storage tote for all the supplies listed below. Then you can pack it away with your Halloween decorations at the end of the season and be ready for your pumpkin next year.
What you'll need:
- Your printed Venom pumpkin stencil
- A pumpkin that will fit your stencil
- Antibacterial wipes
- Push pin tacks
- Graphite or carbon transfer paper
- A ballpoint pen
- A standard Sharpie
- A pointed serrated utility knife (here's an alternate if the first one is sold out)
- A Kemper ribbon tool for scraping the outer layer of your pumpkin
- A linoleum cutter set for detailed scraping
- An old CD to scrape out the inside
- Battery-powered LED string light in a warm tone to light your pumpkin (recommended, and here are some alternates).
How to use a stencil to carve your pumpkin
1. Clean your pumpkin's exterior and scrape the inside
Cleaning your pumpkin from the top down is hard, so don't cut a hole around the stem. Instead, cut out a section about 7 or 8 inches square from what you've chosen to be the back of your pumpkin. Don't throw away the piece you cut out. Reach in the hole and use the old CD to scrape out the seeds and pulp, and use a wipe to clean off the outer skin.
2. Transfer the design
Align your stencil over a sheet of 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 pattern to your pumpkin.
Remove the pins, template and the carbon paper, then trace over all the transferred carbon lines with your Sharpie.
3. Carve and scrape your pumpkin following the template instructions
Find any are areas to be scraped in your design (there might not be any). Those parts will glow but they'll be translucent and muted compared to the cut out sections. Use the ribbon cutter and linoleum tool to scrape just the outside skin of the pumpkin off without cutting all the way through.
Use your serrated utility knife to cut into your pumpkin following the lines you drew with your sharpie.
4. Clean off the outside
Use more wipes to get rid of remaining extra sharpie marks and any graphite that's on your pumpkin.
5. Light your jack-o-lantern
Power on the string lights and insert them through the door you carved in the back. Close up the opening with the saved pumpkin piece and put your jack-o-lantern outside.

There are lots of Venom and Venom-themed pumpkin patterns out there, so I'm limiting this to what I've found to be the best of the best! There are a few easy Venom pumpkin ideas, a handful of expert-level designs and plenty of in-between stencils that anyone can do.
