Teal pumpkins are a symbol to say you have non-food treats available this Halloween. You can also spread the #KeepItTeal spirit with traditional carved jack-o'-lanterns. Draw your own freehand message on paper. Make sure all pattern shapes stay connected to the edge of the pumpkin. If they are not connected, they will fall out when you carve your pumpkin. You can create your message using a stencil-type font in a drawing application. Stencil-type fonts have those connections.

- Print out the pattern. If it does not fit your pumpkin, you can shrink or enlarge it using your printer settings.
- Trim around the pattern and tape it to your hollowed-out pumpkin
- Use a pushpin or poke tool to mark the outlines of all the shapes. Remove the paper.
- Use a small serrated knife to cut along all the pinhole lines.
