Pumpkin Jack Welcomes You!

Pumpkin Jack is all about carving pumpkins. I have patterns, instructions, anecdotes, carving galleries and even Halloween stories. Come in and stay a while. Please return often.

The majority of the patterns on this site are quiet complex and require hours of time to complete. If you find them to be intimidating or, perhaps, you would like a little practice first before tackling them, you might wish to attempt some more traditional patterns here, some Halloween images here or my extensive collection of smiley face patterns here.

Number of patterns so far: 1416

What's The Latest?

Here are the patterns for Halloween 2016, Prime Ministers:

Pattern of the Month - October

Welcome back to October! In Canada October is a not only the month of Halloween, but is also a month of Thanksgiving. I am thankful that Halloween will soon be here!

Our Prime Ministerial patterns of the month are our Halloween Prime Ministers. No, you funny people, it's not because Alexander MacKenzie and Jean Chretien are especially scary, although I'm sure they had their moments, as most politicians do. As it happens, both of these gentlemen took up the job of Prime Minister mere days after Halloween, November 7, 1873 and November 4, 1993 respectively.

I do hope that you've enjoyed our gallery of Canadian Prime Ministers just in time for next year's 150th Canadian anniversary of Confederation. Coming up soon for next year: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 2017 will be 25 years since the movie and 20 years since the start of the TV series!

Have a wonderful October!

Alexander Mackenzie - 2nd Prime Minister

Jean Chretien - 20th Prime Minister
