  Happy Halloween!
We’ve provided UD-in-
spired carving stencils for
your holiday pumpkins.
Using your carving saw,
cut out the top of your
pumpkin so it’s large
enough to maneuver your
hand inside. Scoop out
the goop inside, saving
the seeds and thinning
the sides. Then tear or cut
along the dotted lines of
the stencils and tape them
onto the desired carving
side of your pumpkin.
Carve along the lines of
the stencils, and in no
time you’ll have your
own UD-style Halloween

pumpkin leftovers?

                                   CARVING TIPS:
                                     1.    Buy a small carving kit. They’re as cheap as $1 and include
                                           a saw and scoop specific for pumpkin carving. Plus, they
                                           are much safer than sharp kitchen knives.

                                     2.    If any uncarved pieces begin to droop, use a straightened
                                           staple or paperclip to hold the piece in its place.

3.   Scrape away the inside wall of your desired carving side until it’s
     about an inch thick. This will make carving much easier and your
     lantern much brighter.

4.   Use a thumbtack to poke holes along the stencil outlines. This
     guides your carving and maps out what you’re going to do before
     you start cutting your pumpkin.                  Contributions by Randi Sheshull
