Carving the skull portion of the stencil

When compared to some of the other Halloween skull templates found online, the skull stencils on this page are really easy to complete.

Start by carving out the skull portion of the pattern. Carve the skull eye sockets, then the jawbone finishing with the nose cavity. Once you are satisfied with your skull head, move on to the crossbones part of your pattern.

Once the skull is complete you can then decide if you want to carve out the crossbones. There have been instances in the past where I've omitted the crossbones simply because I ran short on time after spending so much time carving the skull portion.

What size will these skull & crossbones stencils print at?

Each of these skull & crossbones stencils will fit on an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper when printed. This size will allow you to use these templates on almost any size pumpkin.

If you are attempting to carve a smaller sized pumpkin and these skull templates are too big, try leaving out the crossbones and carve only the skull head. Decreasing or enlarging the size of your printed template can be done through your printer's settings.

All of these skull templates have been vectorized so that image quality does not decrease when enlarging.
