Ok, so you’ve planned out your weekend trip to the patch and you need some free pumpkin stencils to make your Jack-O-Lantern’s Instagram-worthy. Maybe that means you want to decorate with timeless characters or maybe you want to show your love for your favorite CW show. But whatever your poison, you probably want super easy pumpkin carving ideas to use so you don’t spend hours trying to put Cole Sprouse on a squash and miss Halloween altogether.
It’s ok, we’re here to help! We configured some pumpkin carving templates to doll out your gourd this season — and we have everything from Riverdale and Pretty Little Liars symbols to One Direction and Disney cutouts. Just print them out, slightly wet the stencil, position it on the pumpkin, make a dotted line around the black parts with a pin, and then cut those parts out.

We’re pretty sure the cute crown sweater Betty wore at Jug’s birthday basically is the universal logo of Bughead from now on. Show Barchie-shipping trick-or-treaters they have no place at your home.
