Materials Needed:

  • pumpkin (choose one that has a flat side)
  • wood-carving chisel
  • X-Acto knife
  • computer and printer
  • painter's tape
  • napkins or paper towels
  • pencil
  • black craft paint or permanent marker

Print and Tape Letter

Measure the front side of your pumpkin to determine what size letter you'll need. Using your computer, select a font you like and print it out. Trim off most of the excess copy paper around the letter, then use painter's tape to attach the letter to the flattest side of the pumpkin.

Trace Letter

Using an X-Acto knife, trace the letter's outline onto the pumpkin.

Tip: If the letter has any inside lines, cut those out first. Use a napkin or paper towel to wipe off any juice that may have seeped out during the tracing process.

Draw Side Lines

Following the pumpkin's grooves on the left and right sides of the letter, draw two vertical pencil lines onto the pumpkin. The lines should extend an inch above and below the monogram.
