INSTRUCTIONS: Prepare your pumpkin for carving by cutting out the stem and removing all of strings and seeds from the inside. To make carving easier, thin the walls of the pumpkin a little bit. Print the stencil and then tape it to your pumpkin. Then, using a push pin, thumbtack, or nail, punch holes through the paper along the lines into the pumpkin. Once all of the lines are punched, remove the paper and let your holes guide you as your carve out the design. All shaded areas will be cut out. Use the stencil as reference.
CAUTION: Carving a pumpkin can be dangerous. Take care in using knives. By using this template, you acknowledge and understand that there are dangers and risks associated with the activities described above and release all liability from The Printed Pig Workshop, and Alyssa Strand.
