Dare I DIY?: Tactile Typography Pumpkin (And A Dolled Up One Too)

 
 It's pumpkin carving time! But, guess what? I am not so skillful with a carving knife. My dream pumpkin consists of Bob Marley's face, attached with costume dreads at the top and filled the with shallow warm water and dry ice. Would that not be the best pumpkin you've ever beheld in your life as you approached the door step on Halloween night? If you say no, you are lying. If you actually make that pumpkin, please credit it back to me and send me pictures so I can post them every Halloween for the rest of my life.

The second raddest pumpkin I thought of is based on these amazing works of art by Dominique Falla featuring tactile typography. I immediately thought to myself, "that would make an awesome pumpkin!" So off I went on my merry little way to recreate Dominique's genius with my own Halloweenie spin.

Before you start, make sure you print off your desired spooky type in a Word document. Base the size of the type off of the shape and size of your pumpkin. Here are the rest of the deets:
