Crow in a Cage and Jack-o'-Lantern Pumpkin Stencils

Add a cage pattern to a painted-white pumpkin for a spooktacular no-carve pumpkin design.

Download the pattern directly onto sheets of adhesive-backed vinyl. Note: We used Cricut Adhesive-Backed 3 mil Vinyl, available at crafts stores. With scissors or a crafts knife, cut the birdcage top and bottom, crow, and branch from vinyl. Cut several 1/8-inch strips for birdcage wires with a paper cutter.

Choose one of the following methods to apply the pattern to the pumpkin. Carefully remove backing from each piece; press pieces onto pumpkin. Apply wire strips last, trimming to fit and referring to the photo for placement. Or use transfer tape to apply your design. Print pattern onto computer paper. Note: We used Cricut Vinyl Transfer Tape, available at crafts stores. Lay the transfer tape over the pattern and remove backing sheet. Press the cut pieces onto the transfer tape. Position the transfer tape onto the pumpkin, pressing all areas to adhere vinyl.

Embellish the birdcage with adhesive-backed gems and beads.

Trace or download the pattern and transfer to your pumpkin. Using a knife or carving tools, cut out the design.
