A Skull Stencil



These stencils are here for the purpose of decorating your Halloween Jack-O-Lantern but with a little thinking you can probably come up with many other ways to use them.


You could paint them on large paper bags for the kids to trick-or-treat or on small bags that you stuff with goodies for the special goblins in the neighborhood.


Want to see this skull turned into a Mask? Just check out Printable Halloween Masks to see how a stencil can become a mask.





Also, you can use this skull to decorate cookies. I don't joke about sugary snacks either. See how at this tasty Halloween Crafts Idea Page.



A Ghost in the Doorway



Tired of the mess of carving a real pumpkin? You can use these free stencils to carve a craft pumpkin. Not only is it much cleaner you’ll have a pumpkin for years to come. Find out how at Pumpkin Crafts.


Stencils can be used to create many different effects. For instance, the most common thought that comes to mind when stencils are mentioned is the production of image by stippling paint into the cut out portions (called islands) of the stencil but here they are used to guide the decoration of Halloween Pumpkins.


The design below is unusual in the sense that it is the background that is removed to let the light through and create the silhouette of a (not so scary) ghost!
