It's Thanksgiving decorations crafts time. Carving or etching pumpkins is a lot of fun. Basically all you need is a good template or stencil. Here are four easy to etch or carve Thanksgiving Holiday Pumpkin Carving Templates and Stencils

There are many ways to decorate a pumpkin. We provide a graphic guide to the best way, in our opinion, to get a perfect Thanksgiving pumpkin carved or etched in time.

We also provide a guide to the best pumpkin carving tools for you to use. These can usually be purchased at a crafts store. But it's important to know that you really do not need any special equipment. The template or stencil is the most important.

Note that the designs for Thanksgiving can be more detailed than for Halloween. This can make the carving work significantly more difficult. But do not worry, you have another option. It is no necessary to cut all the way through the pumpkin. For Thanksgiving  you can etch just past the bright orange of the pumpkin skin into the lighter pulp.

One of the most popular uses of a pumpkin etching for Thanksgiving is to make a soup tureen that has a Thanksgiving design etched on one or two sides of the pumpkin. Which ever you choose to do these templates and stencils will serve you well.

First you transfer the pattern to the pumpkin, usually with a series of small puncture holes. Then you start in the center of the pumpkin template design and start cutting.    Some people cut out the top first and clear out the inside of the pumpkin. Other people prefer to do that at the end. It's up to you.

It is very easy to access these stencils and prepare them for your work etching or carving a pumpkin. First click on the image you wish to use. Then it will automatically enlarge, opening in a new window. This window will remain open for your future use.

Using the normal commands for your computer, usually right click of the mouse cursor, save the enlarged stencil you have chosen to your own computer. Then print the stencil. Cut out the stencil and trace edges.
Using a sharp paring knife or punching shallow holes with an ice pick is best. Do the outside edge first, then work on the inside details.

About This Blog

This blog started out as a private blog. The goal was contact and communication with my children as I traveled. Posting fun coloring pages with great colouring pictures to print and colour gave all of us enjoyment.

Now two of three children have grown and left the nest. Two years ago we made our coloring pages public, mostly on Hubpages. Their unreasonable and questionable restrictions of first amendment rights of their members lead to us leaving Hubpages and using the Blogspot / Blogger system.

We hope you get as much enjoyment out of these free coloring pictures and other childhood education materials as we do providing them.
