Now, you might think it impossible to carve 3D pumpkins yourself. But you can learn how.

Ray has a step-by-step 3D Pumpkin Carving Tutorial video that will take you through the steps of carving your own 3D pumpkins. He starts with an easy 3D pumpkin and then shows how to make one that is a bit more detailed (but still easy enough to follow) and then goes to a more intermediate carving. You’ll be surprised that you actually can carve a great 3D pumpkin yourself.
