Blogtober: Bookish Pumpkins!

Halloween is coming up, and I wanted to share some pumpkin carving templates you can use to make your porch look bookish at the end of the month! So for day 13 of Blogtober, I’m going to share some templates you can use and how to make your own!

I think it was maybe 2 or 3 years ago when I realized I didn’t have to use the standard pumpkin carving templates you get in the kits from the store. I was in the height of my fandoms phase, obsessed with Marvel, Supernatural, Dr. Who, and more! I went on google and looked up some fun fandom pumpkins and picked a few to carve, and the next year I started looking for some book ideas. I’m excited to share some book pumpkin ideas with you! I’ll be sharing some literary pumpkins from an article from BookBub and some I found elsewhere (and I’ll be linking to the original source, so if you like what you see, be sure to click the link!)!

  1. Well, having a template definitely helps! If you want an easier way to carve them(and for them to be reused next year!), pick up a hollow foam one from a craft store like Michaels and use a pen knife! Tape the pattern to the pumpkin, use a sharp pointy object like a push pin to poke holes in the pumpkin, then follow the outline you make and voila! I’m sure you can do it!
