This friendly-faced pumpkin glows with character.

Show your true feathers this Halloween when you carve this cute owl face into a pumpkin. (Get the Template When You Click Here!) Before you start carving up this owl-o-lantern, make sure you cut around the stem, remove the top, and scoop out all the ooey gooey gourd flesh and seeds. Don’t throw away those pumpkin seeds, though! Backyard birds like blue jays and cardinals will eat pumpkin seeds if you leave them out at feeders.
