How to carve your pumpkin to look like Donald Trump

How to carve your pumpkin to look like Donald Trump

MANY social media users carved pumpkins that resemble the former US President – and the results are terrifying.

Want to impress your neighbours bigly? Here's how to make one yourself.

The Trumpkin could be back this year after it first appeared in 2016 when Trump initially ran for President, and the designs are getting more and more creative. 

In previous years, people from across the US and even in the UK shared their own carved orange pumpkins, made to resemble the 45th President. 

Some have even joked that the bright orange colour looks remarkably like Trump’s famous tan. 

Some creative Halloween-lovers used straw to resemble Trump’s iconic blonde hair. 

And a couple ran with the Covid-19 theme, to show the President being injected with medication after he caught the virus last year.

Follow these simple steps to make Halloween great again!

  1. Select a large pumpkin with a flat surface and a long horizontal stem (I’ll explain the stem part later.)
  2. Cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin and scrape out the innards. Remove the seeds and set innards aside for later.
  3. Print the stencil (below) and tape it on to the flat side of your pumpkin. It’s a simple template that should be easy to use, regardless of your carving skills.
  4. Trace the template with a pencil. Be sure to press hard as the point is to create grooves on the pumpkin’s surface to guide your carving.
  5. After removing the template, take a pen and darken in the grooves for ease in carving.
  6. Carve away! Use a small knife with a serrated edge to give you better control.
  7. Now comes the fun part – the hair! Spray the lid of the pumpkin with spray glue. If you don’t have spray glue, you can still create innards hair, although it may not stick very well. 
  8. Adhere the innards to the lid and the horizontal stem to build up the hair. Add more spray as you add new layers.
  9. Enjoy your Trumpkin! Let the spray glue dry before handling or removing the lid. Set your Trumpkin outside and insert a lit candle.
