Ginkgo Leaf Pumpkin

Download our free pattern to create a whimsical pumpkin design inspired by nature.

Step 1: Download the ginkgo pattern. Resize the design on your printer or a photocopier to suit the size of your pumpkin and cut out the pattern.

Step 2: Tape the pattern to the pumpkin. Use a washable pen to trace around the pattern. Feel free to alter the pattern by adding design elements of your choice.

Step 3: Using your pumpkin-carving tools, carefully cut along the pattern lines. For the leaves, cut from the base of the leaf and taper towards the outer leaf edge.

Step 4: Wash off any leftover marker lines.

Good to Know: Prolong the life of your pumpkin by shaving instead of carving the ginkgo leaf pattern (pictured).
