Create your own pumpkin carving stencils

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHalloween is only a week away, and if you are planning on carving a pumpkin this year, why not try something a little different? Instead of the usual jack-o-lantern faces wouldn’t it be fun to use your own face, your friend’s face, or even the likeness of someone famous?

To help you get started we created this video tutorial on how to create pumpkin carving stencils using PaintShop Pro. The steps are simple: you’ll learn how to take a photo, convert it to black and white, boost the contrast and then turn it into a negative image that can be used as a pumpkin-carving stencil. So before you start working on your pumpkin take a few minutes to see how it’s done. The actual carving skills we’ll leave up to you!

We’d love to see the results of your pumpkin-carving attempts this year, so go ahead and share with us on our social media sites.

Happy Halloween!
