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
- Printer

I love this pumpkin! Very geek chic!
Great !!!! Love it!!!
WOW! That is amazing. It is such a creative idea. Thanks for sharing--I bet it looked great on Halloween--it looks like its glowing : ) !
