This DIY Halloween decoration by Thingverse user 'dktosoch' puts a creative spin on making a jack-o'-lantern from a pumpkin. Rather than being carved from a classic seasonal gourd, the pumpkin decoration features an entirely 3D-printed design.

The 3D-printed 'XL - Makies Jack-O-Lantern' is a scaled-up version of the original Makies Jack-O-Lantern on Thingverse, which is barely bigger than a small LED tealight. This larger design makes a more sizeable home decoration and stand-in for a real orange pumpkin from the patch.

Since all of the files for the DIY Halloween decoration are freely shared on the Thingverse platform, there is the potential for those users with a knowledge of 3D printing software to manipulate the face of the pumpkin before printing their own unique design.
