Free Printable No-Carve Pumpkin Faces

Sharing is caring!

The hot weather in Florida, even in October, is not carving pumpkin-friendly, so I am always putting a new twist on our decorations. Today I am sharing how to DIY the Easiest No-Carve Monster Pumpkins for Halloween. A quick and easy project featuring Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive, Dual Brush Pens, and one of my favorites – the MONOTWIN Permanent Marker!  This is a great project to complete with the kiddos in just an afternoon. Let your creativity go to make the scariest, kookiest, or prettiest monsters with my Free Printable No-Carve Pumpkin Faces!

Here's what you need to make Spooky Cute Monster Pumpkins:


Here's how to create Easy Jack-O-Lanterns for Halloween:


Sketch out some monstrous features on plain paper with MONO Drawing Pencil 3H grade.  This harder lead will allow you to sketch easily without a lot of erasing needed since your lines will be lighter.  I love drawing all of the features independently and then mixing and matching later. If you don't want to sketch your own, you can download my FREE PRINTABLE NO-CARVE MONSTER PUMPKIN FEATURES at the bottom of this post ⇓

Ink in all of the sketches with the bullet tip of Dual Brush Pen N15.

Next, I used my Cricut Bright Pad to trace all of the monster's features onto heavyweight 110 lb. cardstock with the bullet and fine tip of the MONOTWIN Permanent Marker.  I love to draw a double sketchy line when using the fine tip of the MONOTWIN to create added interest. The Cricut Bright Pad is my go-to for all my hand-drawn and hand-lettered printable files – plus it's great for weeding vinyl!

Pick your favorite colors and dig in!  I used the Dual Brush Pens to give my monster features the added POP of color that they needed!

I used some unconventional color combinations of Dual Brush Pens for my quick and easy no-carve monster pumpkins, which I just LOVE!

Next, cut out all monster features.  This is the FUN part – mix and match the features to create the perfectly creepy, cute, or funny monster!

Recycling and upcycling have been my jam since I was a kid. Sometimes I even purchase a certain type of product because of its packaging. For my Recycled Bottle Halloween Ghosts project, I purchased Sparkling ICE Water strictly because of the size and shape of the bottle. Now, I am hooked on the Mango Tangerine, it's slightly fizzy but too bubbly. Secrets revealed!
