You could certainly carve all the mice patterns onto a single large pumpkin, if you'd like. (We did, and it's charming!) But if you're looking for an extra-cute effect, try carving each mouse design onto a small pumpkin and grouping them on your porch steps. For a playful vignette, position a menacing cat pumpkin overlooking the scene.
1. Print out the free mouse stencils by signing in to BHG.com; arrange all stencils on the side of one large, hollowed-out pumpkin, or arrange each stencil on the side of a small, hollowed-out pumpkin. Use tape to secure each stencil in place.
2. With a pin tool or wooden skewer, jab closely spaced holes along the stencil outlines. Keep holes within 1/8 inch of each other. Detach the stencils.
3. Carve along the pin hole guidelines with a thin, serrated woodcutting knife. Push gently on the cutout sections from inside the pumpkin to dislodge them, revealing the patterns. Discard cutout sections.
