Step 1: Artificial Pumpkin

You will need 2 Artificial Pumpkins (aka Funkins ) 12inch. or bigger. You'll need a full pumpkin in one and the other a Half Pumpkin.

Step 2: THE Cutting

The Template I used for The HULK Printed to the Pumpkin Size, I Taped the Template on the Half Pumpkin and started pocking it with a push pin around the Image. Then I used a Hot Knife for the Carving.

Step 3: Trace, Cut and Paint

Trace out the HULK pcs. ( the one that was cut from the Half Pumpkin ) onto the Full Pumpkin Then Draw another line inside of what you traced like 1/4inch this is were your going to cut and after your Cuts of Hulk image in your pumpkin then you could spray painted Green and white as shown in the pictures.

Step 4: Needle Pins

To Make the Hulk stand like 3D effect  I used Needle pins before that I put Aluminum Foil behind the Hulk Image this will give you a brighter light effect, when putting the needle has to close to the Hulk image edges.

Step 5: 3D Pumpkin Light Up Effect.

I used a Mini Green Light Bulb under the Artificial Pumpkin It gives it a brighter light  then the battery led Pumpkin lights.

    Well done.

    I might try this with some spare foam for the front hulk and not carve through the words so the brick design shows in HULK.

    Really well done though.
