October is the time we celebrate Halloween. And it cannot be celebrated without a pumpkin. Therefore, in this post, I will show you how to draw a pumpkin for Halloween. This beautiful, colorful celebration was first a privilege of the people of the western part of the world, but now Halloween is becoming a truly global entertainment. So don’t wait and make your own Halloween decorations this year. One of the special parts of Halloween is carving a pumpkin. In this drawing lesson, you can draw a pumpkin with a face. You can give the pumpkin whatever look you want, or you can just follow the instructions I have prepared. If you like this manual and would like to learn how to draw other things as well, I invite you to see other posts. For example, try drawing a simple clover from How to draw a clover.

Pumpkin for Halloween – simple drawing step by step
- First step – circle
The first step of the manual is very simple. Draw a large, elongated circle in the center of the page. Important note – do not press the pencil too hard against the paper, because eventually we will erase this circle with an eraser.

Erase the wheel and leave only the rollers. Draw three triangles in the middle – two at the same height and one in the middle lower. These will be the eyes and nose of our Halloween pumpkin. Make a horizontal banana-shaped arch below the triangles. Finally, at the top, draw a pumpkin tail.
