For simple designs like this smile emoticon, specialty carving tools are strictly optional. A large nail pierces stencil patterns just as well as a pin tool, and a skinny linoleum or woodcutting knife cuts through pumpkin rind beautifully. Raid your garage for a variety of tools and experiment to find which brings out the best in your pumpkin!

To carve:

1. Sign in to BHG.com and click the button, above, to download our free smile emoticon stencil pattern. Tape it to the side of your cleaned-out pumpkin.

2. Poke along the stencil lines with a large nail, outlining the pattern with closely spaced nail holes. Tear off the paper stencil.

3. Carve the design with a skinny woodcutting knife, sawing gently along the nail holes.

4. Add a battery-operated candle to your pumpkin's interior for a smile that literally brightens a room.
