It’s no secret that I love carving pumpkins. I carve several every year, and have been doing so for the last, ooh, 20 years (oh God, suddenly I feel REALLY old!) I have literally hundreds of designs that I’ve collected over the years – some have been freebies I’ve found online, some I’ve designed myself, and some I’ve paid for.
I thought it was high time I share some of those patterns with you, and since it’s nearly Halloween, it’s time to start thinking about what to carve on this year’s pumpkins!
Any that are free I’ve linked to them, or uploaded them to my blog so you can download them. Any marked with an asterix (*) are from Zombie Pumpkins – I paid to download these, so can’t provide them here for you, but have linked to where you can purchase them if you wish.
If you’ve never carved a pumpkin before, you may want to check out my post: Pumpkin Carving 101 on how to do it!
You’re going to have to forgive some of my older, blurry photographs from many moons ago, but here we go, in year order…(and from when I had a digital camera!)
