Using Pumpkin Carving Stencils As Halloween Cookie Designs!


I HATE carving pumpkins.

I do, its true.

To be honest, it's more the hollowing out and scooping and the smell...ugh.
I wish I liked it, pinkie swear!




I wish it so much that I constantly buy those pumpkin carving stencil books that are next to the checkout stand at the grocery store.

This year I was determined to do SOMETHING with the darn books.
(or else I was gonna have to bring home an actual pumpkin!)


So I tried them out on a cookie....



Whoops....that's a bit blurry!


I tore out a page, reduced it by 50% on my copier/printer and threw it in my kopykake.




The silhouettes are painted with a little brush and black food coloring.




Waaaaaaay less stinky than a pumpkin.

This tree was a bit smaller than my ginormous pumpkin cookie 
so I just added some tombstones on the sides and made the branches bigger.




You could also print these images out on card stock and cut them out.
Then just trace around the image and color it in.

Or....y'know....buy a pumpkin and carve that.



Thanks for stopping by! Lizy B
