A light touch is helpful when you're carving through etched pumpkin sections, like when you're creating this upside-down bat's carved eyes. Try using a long pin tool, like the one you use to prick the stencil pattern, to gently pierce the etched section using a twisting motion. For cutout sections bordering etched sections (like the sections forming the bat's nose), saw gently and slowly along the etched border to prevent accidental breakage.

To carve:

1. Tape your bat stencil to a pumpkin that you've cleaned out thoroughly. Use a long pin tool to prick holes along the stencil's lines, keeping the pin pricks close together. Tear off the stencil, but keep it nearby.

2. Refer to the stencil to locate areas surrounded by dotted lines. Etch those areas with a gouge, removing just the pumpkin's top layer of skin.

3. Locate areas on the stencil surrounded by solid lines, and carve those areas with a thin crafts knife. Saw gently, following the pin pricks, and leave cutout sections in place until the entire design has been carved.

4. Press gently on the cutout sections to push them outward, and light up your pumpkin's design by adding a flameless candle to the interior.
