This particular pumpkin uses two patterns. One pattern is for the face, the other pattern is for the "exit wound". The pumpkin depicts a gunshot to the head. The entrance wound is made with a simple drill bit. No pattern is necessary.
You can really make this pumpkin great with a few props. You way want to save some of the pumpkin guts and mix them with our special recipe of fake blood (in the how-to section) to provide some added gore. I am sure you can think of some other ways to use the fake blood you can make with corn syrup and red food coloring.
I bought a fake gun at the dollar store to turn my pumpkin into a suicide victim.

When I am not carving pumpkins, I run a bulletproof vest company. BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests are the value leader in body armor. We are very popular with people like armored car operators and ATM repairmen.
