Scary pumpkin stencils aren't just for kids: many adults enjoy decorating for Halloween every bit as much as (or perhaps even more than) do children. My scary pumpkin stencils are printable. Just click on the image that catches your fancy and follow the instructions to print it out. Trace the design on your pumpkin, then, following your guidelines, slice right through the pumpkin flesh with an Exacto knife or similar tool.
Why is Halloween so popular with adults, as well as with kids? I think it's the scary element combined with the fancifulness of the holiday. Other holidays, too, are full of fancy, but neither Santa Claus nor the Easter Bunny raise any goosebumps. And many adults do enjoy being scared. Don't believe me? Just check out how many people rent horror movies!
