Pumpkin Stencils

Don’t get spooked! Here are some free pumpkin stencils and Halloween Crafts Projects for you to jump start your Scary Holidays. There’s even a video for you to personally join me on this Pumpkin Crafts Adventure.

 

Pumpkin Stencil Craft SamplerAre you ready for some free Halloween Stencils and great ideas of what you can do with them? You may already have some ideas for your Halloween Crafts and that’s great but I’m excited to share with you a few things that I was able to scare up here. You’ll find some fun pumpkin stencils and jack o lantern stencils that I sketched plus a video so I can personally share with you the fun I had with these Free Halloween Stencils.

I painted these pumpkin stencils on two fabric tote bags (the orange one I bought at a thrift store and the white one I bought at a craft supply store), a plain white paper bag (bought in a pack of ten at the discount store) and a small glass jar (also from the thrift store). I tell you more about this in the video below.

For the little pumpkin stencil on the white bag laying flat in the photo above, go to Jack O Lantern Stencils.

Jack O Lantern StencilAre you looking for a stencil of a pumpkin or a stencil to carve your pumpkin? Well, I didn’t know without talking to you personally so I’ll just give you some of each. This page has one Jack O Lantern stencil for pumpkin carving. But if that’s what you were looking for and one just isn’t going to cut it, than crawl on over to Free Pumpkin Carving Stencils where you’ll find a few scary designs that are much more than just an evil face.

Ready to get carving yet? If you’re going to cut up a pumpkin than don’t forget to visit our Pumpkin Carving Page if you need to know more about using pumpkin stencils to tap out the puuurrrrrfect design!

If you get scared by the mess of carving a real pumpkin than don’t miss this great Pumpkin Crafts idea. Use a plastic craft pumpkin to carve your jack o lantern this year. No Mess! No Fuss! And boy did it come out cute. Best yet you can use any of the free pumpkin stencils we have for you.

Pumpkin StencilAre you new to working with paper stencils? You should know that you can prepare your paper stencils so that they can be used again and again. Yeah! That’s right. The one you just printed can become a long term free stencil. It’s easy. Do you have some of that clear, wide packing tape? Just use it to run even strips covering all of the paper surfaces before you cut out the stencil. Burnish or rub the tape down to get the air pockets out. That’s it.

Or better yet, get a roll of clear shelf liner. That covers your stencil in one swoop.

For more on working with paper stencils see our article on Stencil Downloads.

By the way, I like to cover just the top side of the paper. If the bottom is slick it can encourage paint to bleed under the stencil and smudge your surface. The underside may get wet when you wash it but just let it dry and you can flatten it back out by storing it in a book.

Working with paper stencils has a few more advantages. You can adjust the size of your paper stencil to fit the size of your project. Just take the page to a copier and reduce or enlarge. Then cut out the stencil openings. It’s that easy and you can’t do that with a plastic stencil.

Well here’s that video where I use these free pumpkin stencils on some Halloween Craft Projects!

Well hope you found what you were looking for and come back soon for more great stenciling ideas.

Happy Halloween and Happy Stenciling,

Penny
