How to Carve Pumpkins With John Deere Stencils


If you're tired of the traditional jack-o'-lantern face carved on your Halloween pumpkin, consider carving a John Deere pumpkin this year. The project is ideal for tractor enthusiasts and easy to complete using a homemade stencil technique. You can create the stencil from a printout on the computer or a magazine image, and use basic tools to finish the carving process. In no time, you'll have a unique pumpkin that stands out in the neighborhood.

Things You'll Need

  • Pumpkin
  • Carving knife
  • Stencil
  • Nail
  • Sharp knife
  • Candle
  • Cut the top off the pumpkin using a carving knife and set aside. Scoop out all the insides of the pumpkin and discard.

  • Make a John Deere stencil by printing out an image of a John Deere tractor online or tearing one out from a magazine.

  • Tape the stencil to one side of the pumpkin. Punch holes along the perimeter of the tractor using a nail, punching one hole about every 1/2 inch.

  • Remove the stencil from the pumpkin and cut out the image on the pumpkin created by the holes. Connect the holes with a sharp knife to cut out the image of the tractor.

  • Place a lit candle in the pumpkin and put the top of the pumpkin back in place.
