This instructable takes a real carved pumpkin and turns it into a glow in the dark ring.

Step 1:

Take a small pumpkin and carve it to suit your taste.

Step 2:

Scan the pumpkin into a 3d file.

Step 3:

Print on a 3d printer using glow in the dark filament.

The ring file is available at:

    Awesome! You should link to a copy of your tinkercad file! That way people can remix it and play with it.
