I find pictures to be inspirational. It’s amazing how people go all out in their pumpkin carving. I suppose you can never have enough carved pumpkins lighting the path for the trick-or-treaters or just to decorate your porch.
I think going to the pumpkin patch is an exciting venture and it is difficult to select only one, so why not go all out. My thought is once you get started on one pumpkin, why not do another. Yet, it is good to pace yourself, depending upon how elaborate your design is.
Here are a few templates I thought would be fun:
Witch on a Broom
I hope these designs inspired you, I’ll have more free templates as we get closer to Halloween. I love seeing what others have done with their pumpkins. Some people are very clever.
Thanks for stopping by!

I like having a few witches flying around on their broomsticks as my holiday décor. Especially one as cute as this one.
With the instructions and the free templates they’re easy to assemble set up however and wherever you choose. It’s a fun paper project the kids may enjoy.

I’m not much into pumpkin carving — especially cleaning out the gunk inside. Then after all the work, it doesn’t last as long as I’d prefer. I do applaud all you brave and ambitious pumpkin carvers. It’s just not for me, that’s why I’m sticking with paper crafts. These will last unless they get smashed underfoot or someone sits on them, but I can always make them again. These paper jack-o-lanterns are carved in a traditional manner which appeals to me. I’d put a candle light inside — battery operated which are safe for paper crafts. I’d also print out the free templates on heavy card stock.

Once in awhile an irresistible ghostly craft comes along that I must try before putting it here to share with you. I didn’t make just one, I have a full dozen of them lined up on my mantle.
This adorable ghost sets on a pedestal so you know it’s a real ghost going trick-or-treating, not a child dressed up as a ghost. He is well equipped with a lantern and a pumpkin to hold all the goodies he’ll be collecting in the neighborhood.
I know all my will friends will want one of these to decorate their own houses. In the meantime I can enjoy them.

Coffins and Skeletons come to mind when the word Halloween is spoken. Well, those same images come to mind when the word Cemetery is spoken, too.
These are impressive coffins that you can make with the free templates. Select the ones you like or make them all by printing them on a thick white cardstock.
The words that come to mind when you see these coffins have more complex dimensions feeding the imagination with sinister words or of Halloween icons. The chained coffin may bring thoughts of something evil inside that should never be released. There’s a simple rusty coffin and more elaborate ones. Each is unique and would appeal to someone on your party list. The serious question is what will you put inside of each one . . . and who is to receive each one.
I have my collection on a shelf right now, but I’ll be moving them around as the days get closer to Halloween. I may make more, because they do attract attention and they’re so irresistible that friends and family ask to take one home. Some have been bold enough to ask for the whole set.
(Coffins measure 6 inches long, 2 1/2 inches wide and 1 1/4 inches deep)

Now that you have the templates and the instructions, you can have a quiet evening of watching television or listening to music and putting a few sets of these coffins together.
But wait, http://www.ravensblight.com has Deluxe Coffin Boxes to go along with the Peculiar Coffin Boxes above. I do like the wood grain finish on this Deluxe Coffin Boxes collection. They do have interesting names that make them quite appealing.
Here are the Free Templates for these 6 inch Deluxe Coffin Boxes

Oak ‘Toe Pincher’ Coffin

Walnut ‘Toe Pincher’ Coffin
Now you have eleven different coffin boxes to print out on heavy card stock, cut out and assemble. They each come with a skeleton, but you can add candy and trinkets to these boxes as the mood inspires.
To be honest with you, http://www.ravensblight.com does have smaller Coffin Gift Boxes to add to your coffin boxes collection. These Coffin Gift Boxes are 4 inches long and there is a 4 1/2 inch stone tomb that will allow one of the other three coffin gift boxes to fit inside. These are for smaller gifts, but they are just as interesting to make.
These Coffin Gift Boxes may be smaller in size, but there is an added surprise template for you to print out.

Now you have 14 coffins and one tomb to print out, cut out and assemble for a very nice collection to decorate and delight your friends and family.
Do you feel like something is missing? I was wondering if there were any trinkets that could be made to fit into the gift boxes since they deserve to have something special added to them.
http://www.ravensblight.com didn’t disappoint. They have a collection of rings that seem just right for the occasion.
Oh yes, these Spooky Rings are exactly what I had in mind.
And there are Free Templates:

How would you like some Spooky Pendants? They do seem to go well with these Spooky Rings. http://www.ravensblight.com delivers once again:
Except for putting everything together, I believe you have enough to keep you busy for some time.
The coffins along with the Spooky Rings and the Spooky Pendants would make creative party favors. You may also find other uses for them as well.
