Free Jack-O-Lantern Templates at Fantasy Pumpkins

nick dickover carved and sculpted pumpkins

Gladly for us, Nick Dickover is really into pumpkin carving and sculpture. Since 2000, you can admire and learn how to do his Jack-O-Lantern creations online on Fantasy Pumpkins.

He gives most of his templates for free. His patterns are not for the novices. With such levels of details, many are in fact extremely difficult to do.

Learning How to Carve

With a template, you need time and patience to be able to reproduce his works. If you want to learn the tricks of this art, Nick recommends theĀ  Carvingpumpkins.com community board. You will find on Carvingpumpkins.com more free patterns and lots of advice on how to carve pumpkins.

Pumpkin Display

Every year, he exhibits his creations outside. Last year he exhibited 25 magnificent pumpkins. Each pumpkin pattern takes between 2 to 23 hours to carve.

He excelled with the shot where Malificent casts her curse. With good reasons, Jack Sparrow was a bit hit in 2006. People mentioned this was the sexiest pumpkin they had ever seen.

If you are in the Washington DC area, Noel prepares an outdoor exhibit every Halloween. You can admire all the pumpkins he made at 14223 Hartwood Court, Centreville VA, 20121. It sounds like a treat.
