PUMPKIN CARVING DIY WITH PRINTABLE STENCILS

Muahaha...it's time to carve that Jack-O-Lantern! Here's how to carve a pumpkin like a pro...
Here's what you'll need:
1. A pumpkin (of any size)
2. A stencil (get your printable Ardene stencils right here or scroll down)
3. A candle OR string lights + mason jar
4. A marker
5. Scissors
6. A scooping tool (a large spoon works)
7. A sharp knife
8. Pumpkin carving saws
9. A pumpkin poker (a skewer works)
10. Large garbage bags
11. A large bowl (for your seeds)
1. Open up your garbage bag and use it as a tablecloth. Place your pumpkin in the center. Pumpkins get messy!
2. Using your marker, trace where you will cut off the top of the pumpkin to gut it.
3. With a sharp knife, slide in the blade and pierce all the way through. Look at that juice!
4. Lift off the top completely.

5. Using your scooping tool, empty out the pumpkin until the flesh is clean. Keep the seeds (for toasting, obvi) and throw out the slimy insides. Yuck! 
6. Your pumpkin is ready to carve! 
7. If you are going to use string lights in a mason jar instead of a candle, cut out a hole in the back for the plug to come out of.
8. Choose your stencil (scroll down to print cool stencils made just for you!) and cut off excess paper. Position the stencil where you want it on the pumpkin.
9. With your pumpkin poker or skewer, poke around the outlines of the eyes, nose and mouth of the stencil. Make sure to poke through the skin so your dots are visible once you take the stencil off.
10. Take your knife or carving saw and connect the dots! Go through the entire thickness of the skin so the pieces pop right out.
11. For string lights, place them in a mason jar.
12. Poke the hole out of the back, pass the electric cord through and plug it in.
*If you're using a traditional candle, light it first, then place it in the center of the pumpkin!
13. Put the top back on and voila! You've got a really cool Jack-O-Lantern to put out on your porch or to decorate the inside of your house!
You can even print out the stencil a bit smaller for a little pumpkin.

Have fun and be creative!
