I downloaded an image from the net and resized it. Then taped it on and hole punched an outlined onto my pumpkin. Using a jigsaw to cut the top and eyes was very fast and easy. Then using a router with a straight bit set to 1/2" I cut out the parts of the face I wanted to glow. Detailed clean up was done with a dremel tool. Check out other instructables for more details on how to carve, but I recommend using a jigsaw and router to save a lot of time.
