Frankenstein Face Pumpkin Stencil

With no etching required and an abundance of easy-to-carve angles, this Frankenstein face is a great project for novice pumpkin carvers who want to sharpen their skills. Just make sure your tools are equally sharp! We recommend using a specialty pumpkin-carving knife, often sold in Halloween supply stores. Look for a thin, serrated knife designed to maneuver in tight spaces.

To carve:

1. Gut your pumpkin by cutting a circle on its underside and prying the circle out. Use a metal scoop (or your hands) to remove the pumpkin innards.

2. Tape your Frankenstein Face stencil to the pumpkin's exterior, smoothing down the paper as you tape. Use a large nail or push pin to prick along the stencil lines into the pumpkin's surface. Keep prick marks close together.

3. Detach your stencil and use a specialty pumpkin-carving knife (described above) to carve the design. (Hint: For greater carving stability, leave cutout pieces in place until you've carved around all sections.) Pop cutout pieces outward by pressing on them with your fingers from the pumpkin's interior.

4. Light your Frankenstein pumpkin with an electric candle.
