This is a relatively simple and very awesome-looking way to carve a pumpkin. The design was inspired by the One Ring, from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Pumpkin - preferably very round and not too tall; as spherical as possible
- Gold spray paint
- A light source - I used a candelabra style bulb because it is much brighter than a candle, and made the inscription easier to read.
- Standard pumpkin de-gutting tools
- X-acto knife
- Toothpicks, pins, or tacks
