October 8, 2020

Now that it’s October that means it’s finally time to start decorating for Halloween, and what’s the most important decoration for Halloween? A jack-o-lantern of course! Don’t worry though we took the liberty of creating a personalized Smart Mouth Pizza stencil just for you. So grab your pumpkins and let’s make a jack-o-lantern!


  • A pumpkin
  • Scissors
  • Pumpkin carving kit
  • Candle/or LED Candle
  • Newspaper
  • Big bowl
  • Tape
  • Marker/or pen
  • Printer
  • An adult to supervise


  • First go to the store and pick out your favorite pumpkin
  • Next it’s time to gather all your supplies
  • Lay down newspaper below your pumpkin where you plan to carve it for easy clean up
  • Download the stencil that is attached below and print it out
  • Grab your scissors and cut out all the black areas from the stencil
  • Tape your stencil on pumpkin and grab your pen to trace the cut out area onto it (don’t forget to trace a line around the top of your pumpkin that’s big enough for you to fit your hand in)
  • Remove stencil, then grab your pumpkin carving tools and cut along the line you made at the top of your pumpkin
  • Time for the messy part, take the top off, grab the scooper and clean out all the pumpkin seeds and put them into a bowl
  • Once the inside is clean it’s time to start carving along all the lines you traced (be very careful not to cut yourself)
  • When you finish carving out all the pieces get your candle and place it inside the pumpkin
  • Place your pumpkin outside, light the candle, and then place the top back on
  • Finally take a picture of your beautiful pumpkin and send it to us!
