Hi! Thanks for thinking up this instructible!! My grand daughter supervised as her dad and I carved out her choices, one of which being this one! We used real pumpkins and it went smooth as could be! She was absolutely thrilled and I was very impressed that it was sos easy! Thank you again!

Hi...check out Mom's Got Ink on FB. She stole your images from this post and didn't give any credit or links.

Nicely done. Did you toss the drill bit after you were done? I've found in the past that pumpkins really do a number on metal.

It's a Funkins, They don't last for 2 or 3 days like the real pumpkins these artificial pumpkin last for many many years, I box my Tinkerbell pixie dust Pumpkin and mailed it to my Mommy she was so happy that it was made by me. Love these Funkins!

Thank you for the tutorial! I made this out of a real pumpkin as a test run before trying on an artificial one as I didn't want to ruin the one that is quite a bit more expensive.
In your pictures, Tink was so bright it seemed to take away from her detail a bit, so I used an Exacto knife to trace the 'pokes', pealed off the skin carefully & then scrapped away some of the flesh in her silhouette. Once the inside was cleaned out, I scrapped the inside right behind her a little more to make the wall a bit thinner to allow more light through. Very happy with the result & thank you for your guidance : )
