Pumpkin carving doesn’t have to end with Halloween. Carving pumpkins to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday can be just as much fun. There are a few places online you can find printable Thanksgiving stencils for doing just so.
One place you can find a few is the website Zombie Pumpkins. They have a section on their site called further festivities. In the further festivities section, there are three Thanksgiving themed stencils you can use for carving a pumpkin.
These three include one stencil design of a Native American and two stencil designs of a turkey.
The stencils are only printable to members of Zombie Pumpkins. Membership ranges in price from $2 to $20. The $2 membership will allow you to print out two of their regular patterns such as the Native American or turkey patterns.
To view any of these stencil patterns, visit the Zombie website.
If you are not able to find a pumpkin stencil you like well enough to use for decorating this year, you can find other great ideas and tips for this holiday season from AC contributors such as the following three:
