This year, treat your gang of goblins and ghosts to a jack-o'-lantern tricked out with creative carvings. Inspired by paint-by-numbers kits, our carve-by-color technique uses color-coded templates to show you how much and where to cut, shave, or scrape your pumpkin to create a jack-'o-lantern that looks richly textured, multitonal -- and terrifying in the best way possible.Be sure to look for a pumpkin that fits your chosen template and is firm all over -- soft spots near the stem or base can indicate premature rot.
