To carve:

1. Attach your printed owl pattern with tape to a hollowed-out pumpkin. Smooth the paper's edges as you tape them to the pumpkin's surface.

2. Make closely spaced pin pricks along the stencil lines, using a pin tool to puncture the paper and the pumpkin's surface. Tear off the printed stencil, but keep it close by.

3. Refer to the stencil pattern to locate areas surrounded by dotted lines. Etch these areas by using a gouge to peel away the pumpkin skin.

4. Locate areas on the stencil surrounded by solid lines, and carve these areas with a thin wood-cutting knife.
