We carved our Halloween pumpkin tonight! We went with a pirate pumpkin carving theme since my son is a big fan of Jake & The Never Land Pirates on Disney Junior. For a free Jake pumpkin carving template courtesy of Disney Junior, click here – this is the template that I used and I found it really easy to use and carve around. There are so many fun extras to add in to make this pirate pumpkin even more special!
Pirate Pumpkin Carving:
I wanted to add in a few little fun extras to reference the Jake & The Never Land Pirates show. Here’s what we came up with:
- We wanted to have a team treasure chest filled with gold doubloons. We started with a cardboard treasure chest from our local party store. We filled this with yellow construction paper, bead necklaces and chocolate gold coins.
- We just wanted an episode featuring a golden pumpkin so we had to include that too! We took a mini pumpkin and spray painted it gold.
- I was trying to find a way to have pixie dust in our display as well so we took a small pumpkin and drilled small holes through it. We have to find a better candle for this one before Halloween night so that it can really glow.
What will you be carving on your pumpkin this year?
