Dog Breed Jack-O-Lanterns, Pumpkin Carving Posts & Links For Halloween

Dog breed jack-o-lanterns

Dog breed jack-o-lanterns! Although I think using a pumpkin carving ‘stencil’ or ‘pattern’ is cheating, it’s what most people use these days if they want a better-than-ordinary Halloween pumpkin sitting on their front porch. And one of this year’s most popular stencils are those of dog breeds.

One of the more popular carvings this year are the AKC Dog Breed Jack-O-Lanterns stencils featured on the Better Homes & Garden site. But rather than show you those formal images, the photo outtakes from the shoot are far more fun to look at.
