A 2d4 pumpkin doesn't blend in. So if you're looking for a pumpkin that pops, skip the orange gourds and look for something more interesting. You'll find vivid red, creamy-white, and even dappled-green pumpkins at farms and farmers markets, and they're all good candidates for carving.

To carve:

1. Attach your 2d4 pattern to the side of your cleaned-and-scraped pumpkin with clear tape, pressing the paper against the pumpkin side to smooth it as you tape.

2. With a pin tool, mark out the pattern on the pumpkin's exterior by poking holes along the stencil lines. Make sure to pierce both the paper and the pumpkin's surface.

3. Pull off the 2d4 pattern. With a serrated crafts knife, carve along the pin hole guidelines, cutting completely through the pumpkin wall. (Hint: Use a gentle sawing motion for best results.)

4. Press on carved pieces to nudge them out of the pumpkin wall.
