How to Throw a Whataburger Pumpkin Carving Party (Stencils Included)

This Halloween, make memories with friends and family by throwing your very own Whataburger pumpkin carving party.

To get you started, we’ve created seven official Whataburger pumpkin carving stencils.

You need:

  • The official Whataburger Pumpkin Carving Stencils, which can be downloaded below
  • Pumpkins
  • Pumpkin carving tools, including a sharp knife and an awl/poker
  • Scotch tape
  • A clear workspace, a trash bin, and a large pan for seeds if you want to roast them
  • Lots of Whataburger! Because what’s a Whataburger pumpkin carving party without it?

Step 1: Prepare your pumpkin

With all your supplies laid out, cut a hole in the top of your pumpkin and clear out all the flesh and seeds. You may choose to toss all of the “guts” of the pumpkin. Or, you can wash the seeds, spread them on a baking sheet, drizzle them in oil, and then toast them in the oven at 325 degrees for 45 minutes for a snack when all the fries are gone.

Step 2: Set your stencil

Next tape your Whataburger Stencil of choice on the pumpkin. Begin poking holes around the stencil with a pumpkin-poking tool or awl to create an outline of your design.

Step 3: Start slashing! (or carving)

Remove the stencil. Carve out the design by following the dots with a sharp knife. Be careful!

Step 4: Light and enjoy!

Finish up your design, drop in a candle, and go ahead and glow with pride. Your Whataburger pumpkin is perfect for any Halloween gathering. Meow.
