    Have you ever wished you could create magical Halloween pumpkins of your own?

    David Caranci, manager of Resort Enhancement at the Disneyland Resort, has given us some not-too-spooky Halloween pumpkin-carving templates featuring some faces you may recognize!

    David’s steps to successfully carving your Halloween pumpkin using the Disney character templates.

    These instructions work for both artificial and real pumpkins.

    • Chose your Disney character template.

    • Enlarge or shrink your template to fit the size of your pumpkin.

    • Cut around the template, reducing the paper size to include only the features to be sculpted.

    • Tape or pin the template on to your pumpkin.

    • Draw over the template with a pencil, pen or store bought template tool.

    • Remove template from pumpkin.

    • You should see indentation lines on your pumpkin highlighting the features to be sculpted.

    • Using a safe pumpkin sculpting tool, slowly begin to sculpt your Disney character face.

    • As you sculpt, stop and look often to ensure eyes, nose and mouth are in proportion.

    • Remember to sculpt a hole under your pumpkin to insert a LED candle.

    Have fun :D
