Endoskeleton pumpkin template

I love carving pumpkins for Halloween. Usually I just download a template or get one from a book, but I really wanted to do an endoskeleton head this year. Since I couldn't find a template for one, I made one. I haven't even carved this myself yet (I'll probably do my carving Thursday night), but Halloween is closing in so I wanted to put this up in case anyone else wants to give it a try as well. I'll post a photo of mine after I've done it. I really hope it looks good. I'd hate to not awe the trick or treaters. We kind of have a reputation to maintain ;)

Download the PDF template here.

If all goes well, it should basically look like this when you're done:



ETA: Here's my finished pumpkin.

Nifty! I will definitely be doing attempting that! ;p

I just found out I can carve a pumpkin with a dremel! I always hated all that sawing. I used to just take my drill to them and make lanterns. :)

Are you talking about using a regular Dremel or one of those special Dremel pumkin sawing tools? Either way I've never tried it myself. My sister got one of the Dremel pumkin carving tools but said it didn't work very well s I've never bothered. I still hand saw mine.

I saw the special Dremels, that's what gave me the idea. I was going to use my regular Dremel, but I wasn't sure what bit to use. Didn't matter anyway, because I couldn't find all of my bits! I tried a couple and it just spit pumpkin all over the kitchen! ;p I ended up using an Exacto knife.

Shooting pumpkins after Halloween? What an great idea ;) Well... maybe if I lived on a farm or something. Where we live, I think the neighbors might be a little alarmed. heh.

Very nifty. I'm not much of a carver, so I'll forgo it myself (especially since I never get any trick or treaters at my apartment). But that's cool.

Ah yeah, we used to miss all the fun in our apartment days. No trick or treaters. We get tons in the neighborhood we live in now though. And we've been carving pumpkins many years. I think the neighbors would be disappointed if we didn't do it.

Cool. If you do carve it and you snap a picture, I'd love to see it.

Hee. Every year I say I'm going to try to create my own template and every year I end up using an existing one. This time I really did it :)

Now I hope I can actually make it look good when I carve it!
