Sorry, but I'm too insecure with my masculinity to carve this one. I reached my boundary at Elsa and Anna.

Creating stencils?

 by BrookR1 ¦  Thu Oct 08, 2015 5:48 am ¦  Forum: Real Pumpkin Carving Help ¦  Topic: Creating stencils? ¦  Replies: 5 ¦  Views: 7756

I was wondering if anyone knew of any tutorials or software available for creating stencils. There were some images that I wanted to convert into a stencil, but wasn't sure how to go about doing it. I may be getting ahead of myself this year, but it's something I'd like to learn for next year. Thanks!

It's great that you have neighbors that are upping the game. When my neighbors put out their pumpkins one week before the official start of fall, I thought "game on". So, I put out 15 pumpkins, 10 gourds, corn stalks, hay bales, scarecrows, doormats, flag, and doorbell sign. I thought for sure they ...

Ugh.. I am so far behind this year after spending over 2 weeks in IDAHO! :P I usually have the house decorated by now and quite a few pumpkins bought, but so far I only have a few new things out that I purchased before leaving. Sadly, my house sits back in the woods and can't be seen from the main ...

Great job so far. I'm waiting for October 1st to start breaking out my fall stuff! That was the original plan. Unfortunately, two of my neighbors dropped the gauntlet and started putting up their fall stuff last week. I never back down from a challenge. When it comes to holiday decorating...I'm kin...

So, I've spent the last week getting all of the generic Fall decorations ready...hay bales, gourds, a scarecrow family, and of course pumpkins. Ryan sent me two sets of pro carvers and the pattern paper. I also ordered the pumpkin gutter and downloaded about 25 patterns. In two weeks I'm going add t...

Yes...it was done in the Traditional American style and Sailor Jerry is the most famous artist of that style. The style has made quite a resurgence in the past few years and in Boise alone there are probably 5 shops that specialize in that style.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Lala, that's cool. I actually live in Eagle. The wife and I used to live right off of Harrison Blvd. for a few years and one of our favorite homes was the one with 100+ carved pumpkins lined up on the steps. We went to Linder Farms over the weekend but didn't have time t...

I have 7 tattoos. One tattoo I got 20 years ago, the rest I've gotten in the past 2 years. I love going under the needle. It's very therapeutic for me. I hate the following days because I can never sleep well.

This is my latest one done last May.

Hey all, I just wanted to post an introduction to say hello to everyone. What a great forum. I stumbled across this site looking for templates and was blown away by the number of passionate carvers on this forum. So a little about myself. I currently live near Boise, ID. My wife and I have always lo...

I wish there were some tattoo inspired patterns available. There are a ton of tattoos in the american traditional style that would translate well into pumpkin patterns.

1. Mr. Lucky
2. Tigers
3. Panthers
4. Dragons
5. Rose and dagger
6. Skulls
7. Hearts

the list goes on...
