Halloween is not Halloween without a carved pumpkin or two by your front door with a cool pumpkin stencil on it to welcome in all those excited trick-or-treaters. Every Halloween night we have always had a carved pumpkin glowing in our front window.
Scary faces, witches and goblins will always make a good pumpkin pattern, but our preference is the ubiquitous black cat. The cat is an intrinsic part of Halloween just as much as monsters, ghosts and ghouls.
To further glorify the Halloween Cat we have put together a fun collection of Cat pumpkin stencils for everyone to enjoy. We continue from our first exciting collection of free Cat Pumpkin Stencils, 10 Free Cat Pumpkin Stencils for Cat lovers. Be sure to check out these free pumpkin carving stencils as well 44 Spooky Cat Pumpkin Stencils you’ll love carving this Halloween and our latest 31 Free Pumpkin Carving Stencils of Cats for a Purrfect Halloween and 16 Free Pumpkin Carving Stencils of Cats for a Vintage Halloween. Check ’em out!
We also added a few extra surprises at the end of our list to help your pumpkin carving go a bit easier this Halloween. First off, weâ€™ve added some links to some great How-To pumpkin carving links. Following that there are some must-have carving tools that are perfect for any pumpkin carving job.
Next are a couple of awesome pumpkin carving pattern books and finally, we found some inspirational pictures of Cat jack-o-lantern carvings for you to enjoy.
We found lots of new pumpkin patterns this year and there was a cat pumpkin stencil in almost all the sets we saw. Weâ€™ll be carving a few of these cat pumpkin patterns ourselves this year. If we could, we would use them all.
