Customized Pumpkin Carving Patterns from Photo’s
If you’d rather create a customized pet pumpkin carving stencil from a photo, it’s easy! Use a clear, close-up digital photo or scan one in. Virtually all of the photo editing software choices have an option to edit the photo into a drawing or similar look (photocopy, sketch, line drawing, etc). If not, use the software to convert the photo to black & white or greyscale. Resize the photo to your preferred dimensions and print.
For the safety of all, use an illuminating device and skip the candles. For more Halloween pet safety tips, please click here.
