Trick-or-treaters will be knocking on your door in less than a week, so the time is now to get your carve on! Check out these cool free carving templates to make your jack-o-lanterns the coolest on the block this Halloween.

Pumpkin carving is not my thing. Seriously. Let me paint it or decorate it with some other non-carving technique and I'll rock it, but my carved pumpkins are usually a joke. Unless you like my go-to yearly pumpkin carving template that looks like this....

I'm so good at that design now, I can free hand it. Pretty impressive, huh? LOL! See, I told you it was bad. Hopefully these pumpkin carving templates will help me do better this year.

Happy carving, my friends!
