Poodle Pumpkin Stencil

Wondering what makes this poodle pumpkin stencil so much fun to carve? Two words: poofy fur. With her bouffant hairdo and long, sweet face, this stylish pup has oodles of charm. Download our stencil today (it's free!) to create your own at home.

For a carved pumpkin that smells as sweet as it looks, sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg inside the pumpkin's carved interior before adding a lit candle. The candle's warmth intensifies the pumpkin-pielike aroma. Your family can thank us later.

To carve:

1. Download and print our free poodle stencil by logging in to BHG.com. (Set up an account, if you don't already have one -- registration is free, too.)

2. Tape the stencil to the outside of a pumpkin that you've cleaned and hollowed out. Prick along the stencil lines with a push pin, keeping pin pricks close together. Tear off the stencil when finished.

3. Etch stencil areas enclosed in dotted lines by scraping off the pumpkin's skin with a gouge or electric etching tool. Carve stencil areas enclosed in solid lines with a skinny, serrated crafts knife.

4. Set a lit candle inside your pumpkin to make your masterpiece glow.
