Every Halloween I stare at my uncarved pumpkin, not sure what to do. With these ideas, I will not have that problem this year. Thanks!

Hello barbbs409 5380175! Thank you for bringing this problem to my attention! All of the links have been corrected, and you should not have any problems in the future. Thank you. Editor, JLH

I have clicked on several template patterns and it takes me to a page but nowhere to click to download template.

You have no idea how excited I am to try the Carved Owl Pumpkin! I might have to make a few of these, that Where the Wild Things Are pattern is also calling my name.

I love Where the Wild Things Are! What a genius idea!

I love spooky pumpkins like this. I might try the Carve Your Face Pumpkin!

I'm totally trying that "Where the Wild Things Are" pattern. That looks awesome!

The fantasy unicorn pattern is hilarious!
