Print out your pattern. You can size it (change the scaling) according to your pumpkin. I printed mine at 60% for the small pumpkins and 100% for the big one that I carved.
Get out your pumpkin carving kit (I got mine from the grocery store). Remove the pumpkin guts! OR - just clean your pumpkin if you plan to draw the pattern vs carve it.
Cut around the pattern and tape it onto your pumpkin.
If you are carving the pumpkin, mark your pattern edge using a push pin or the "pokey radial tool". If drawing it, use a ball point pen to mark the edge. Press HARD - you want to create an indent in the pumpkin. Then pull off the pattern.
Now, take your smallest carving saw and start cutting out the marked areas (cut right on the dots). OR - use a sharpie to color right up to your marked edge.
Clean up your pumpkin and place a light inside! Share your masterpiece with us on IG @dapplebayco
