As the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources conducted a hearing to consider the nomination of Montana Representative Ryan Zinke to be the new Secretary of the Interior, Smokey Bear became an issue.
Would you like to have Smokey Bear looking at your trick or treaters from a Halloween Jack O’Lantern? Here’s how, thanks to the Virginia Department of Forestry: Print this stencil, which looks like this, below:
Cut out the “black pieces” from the stencil sheet, using an x-acto knife or similar tool.
Tape stencil sheet onto pumpkin.
Use a fine-line marker and draw the image ‘through the holes” onto the pumpkin.
Cut these pieces away from the pumpkin.
Or, Option #2
Tape the stencil onto the pumpkin.
Using a pin or other sharp tipped tool “pin-prick” the edge of all the black portions of the stencil.
Remove the stencil, and connect the dots/pin-pricks with a marker.
