So I was inspired by the Bas Relief pumpkin instructible last year to make a passable Frankenstein pumpkin. I decided this year to try it again using some lessons I learned, only I had a rumble in my tummy for BRAAAAINS.

Step 1: Tools

Gather your supplies:
Carving supplies:
    Xacto Knife Handle
    Xacto Keyhole Saw Blades
    Xacto Router Assortment (scraping/digging)
    Large Nail (yes really)

I think it's about $5 for the Pumpkin and about $40 for the knife set. I bought the knives about 3 years ago and I'm still on the same blades.

If you are reading this, but are just going to end up carving a 2 dimension pumpkin (light and dark), the Keyhole Saw Blades are awesome and beat the grocery store kit saws hands down.
Awesome job, this one beats all the rest!!!
This looks so good. :D <br /> <br />I agree with the real final step bit - I do that lots of the time too!
Me too. Your design and illumination caught my eye. Very good!
Thanks both of you! I'm very excited that my first instructable has been so well received.
