How to Make a Stitch Halloween Pumpkin

Save

If your little one loves the character of Stitch from Disney's "Lilo and Stitch," consider carving a Stitch-themed pumpkin this Halloween. By using a stencil, you can easily recreate the image of the little blue alien on the front of a basic pumpkin. Plus, your kids can get in on the action and help out with some of the non-carving tasks in the project. When you're done, you'll have a carved pumpkin the whole family can be proud of.

Things You'll Need

  • Stitch stencil
  • Pumpkin
  • Tape
  • Knife
  • Candle
  • Find a stencil with an image of the Disney character Stitch on it, either from a craft store or by ordering it online from a specialty site. Or, make the stencil yourself by tracing a coloring book image of the character onto a sheet of thick card stock and cutting it out.

  • Turn your pumpkin so the flattest side of it is facing forward. Tape the stencil down on this side so you have a surface to start tracing.

  • Trace the Stitch image onto the pumpkin with a pencil and remove stencil when finished.

  • Chop off the top of the pumpkin and set aside. Scoop out the insides of the pumpkin with your hands and throw away innards. Wash hands.

  • Using a sharp carving knife, carve out the traced Stitch image from the front of the pumpkin. Discard cut out pieces.

  • Place a small lit candle inside the pumpkin and replace top on the pumpkin.
