There are only three days until Halloween. Do you have things ready? What’s on your pumpkin?
If the answer is nothing, don’t worry, there’s plenty of time to decide before you start carving. Many enjoy the traditional toothy grin. For those of you who are adventurous and want to try more, we here at Patch just thought we would provide a few links to some stencils that will challenge your skills.
NOTE: We looked but could not find a stencil for all our favorites. Some sites charge for stencils. And leagues like the NFL hold tight control over any of their images. But we did find a few things. If you know where else we can find some, please tell us in the comments. Enjoy.
