Step 1. Print out monochrome image scaled to fill a full 8"x11" sheet of paper.
Step 2. Tape printed sheet of paper to pumpkin to use as an outline.
Step 3. Poke holes along the outline of said image along straight edges, including inside and outside edges, adding more holes around curves.
Step 4. Play "connect the dots" along the path laid out by the holes poked using a knife suitable for pumpkin carving.
Step 5. Use toothpicks to strategically hold weaker joints in place after bulk of image has been cut out.
Step 6. Shove a candle up in that shit, crack open a beer, and revel in the glory of tracing an image and carving it into a pumpkin.
