This pretty pumpkin you can decorate with our instructions quite simply, candle in and ready is the autumn decoration idea.

You need this for the pumpkin:

  • Computer, printer and paper
  • Pumpkin about 40 cm high
  • Adhesive strips (eg from tesa)
  • Carving tool (craft shop)
  • candle
  • scissors
  • cutting board
  • bread knife
  • spoon
  • fruit knife

Here you will find the template:

And that's how easy it is:

1. Print template and crop motif.

2. Place the pumpkin on the chopping board and use a sharp bread knife to cut out a 16 x 16 cm square.

3. Hollow out the pumpkin with a spoon through the opening.

4. Fix the owl motif on the pumpkin with adhesive tape.

5. Using a fruit knife, cut the template on the pumpkin surface.

6. Peel the owl contours with the carving tool.

7. Use a U-shaped carving tool to coarsely peel the pumpkin surface of the wing of the owl to create a spring appearance.

8. Pierce the individual "V" s with the fruit knife so that you can see through a small gap into the pumpkin interior. Just cut out the eyes and ears with a fruit knife. Put the candle in the pumpkin and light it.
