Carving Pumpkins With Disney Flair

You found and purchased the perfect pumpkin at the patch and it has been waiting patiently on your front porch.  Now, just days away from Halloween, it is time to decorate it.ariel and flounder

While I am quite fond of the traditionally carved Jack-O-Lanterns with their triangular eyes and crooked toothy-grins, I am also quite fond of the newer stencil-carved pumpkins.  From scary to silly to full of intricate details, using stencils has taken pumpkin carving to a whole new level.

Thanks to John Frost at The Disney Blog, families and Disney fans alike can have a great time with some of these pumpkin carving patterns with Disney flair.  The following sites offer stencils that can be downloaded to create your favorite Disney character, princess or villain:

  • The website Cartoon Jr. contains a nice variety of Disney Princesses, Villains and even our favorite Mouse himself
  • Disney Family offers several patterns for Disney characters including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and some of our friends from the Hundred Acre Woods, Winnie-the-Pooh and Tigger
  • The perfect pumpkin for every princess can be found at Huggies with Cinderella, the Prince, the Mice, the castle, Sleeping Beauty and many more
  • DAPs Magic has other unique poses for Mickey and Minnie and other beloved characters

The same effect can be created by using a page from your favorite Disney coloring book.  Simply tape the page on the pumpkin, and start carving away.  Spread out the newspaper,  let your creative juices flow and thrill your neighbors with these unique Jack-o-Lanterns.
