How to carve your pumpkin

To carve one of the three pumpkin designs, you’ll need some handy dandy carving tools, a trash bag, and a hard surface (if you use your dining room table, make sure to cover it with an extra trash bag, tablecloth, newspaper, etc.). You’ll also need a printer and paper to print out your stencils.

No matter what you are carving with, please practice safe handling of the tools.

  1. Using your tools, cut a hole at the bottom of your pumpkin (trust us, it works)
  2. Pull the pumpkin piece and out will fall the seeds and fibers
  3. Using a scraping tool (or large serving spoon), remove the insides until you have a clean center
  4. Take your printed stencil and wet it against the pumpkin so it sticks
  5. Carve out all the black pieces of the stencil (warning: the paper may rip in places so you may have to eyeball some areas)*
  6. Carefully remove carved pieces
  7. Place a battery operated or tea light candle on your surface and place the pumpkin over
  8. Step back and admire your new piece of BART art

*Option: You can shave out pieces of the pumpkin in the windows or even the logo so the light shines through

Let’s see your pumpkins.
