This small little pumpkin is great for kids! The face is carved out I have a single extruder machine, but I switch filaments to do:
1) The first 1.5mm in green or black
2) The next 1mm in GlowFill
3) The rest in orange.
This means the carved out face glows in the dark!
I tend to print the first two colors on .20 and move the orange down to 0.10mm.
If you have Simplify3D, take advantage of the multiprocesses to make this even easier!
I'm attaching the .STLs of six different faces. In addition, I'm including my template which you can use to carve out your own faces.
0.20 / 0.20 / 0.10
I usually do about 30% infill
The first 1.5mm (0 - 1.5mm), I print in green or black
The second 1mm (1.5 - 2.5mm) I print in GlowFill
Then the rest (2.5mm on) I print in Orange.
I use Multiprocesses in Simplify3d to make the filament changes easy. The 3D Printing Nerd has a tutorial of that approach on his YouTube Channel https://youtu.be/ZHe2_h1nQG4
You can put a string through the loop in the vine to make the pumpkin a pendant. In addition, you can glue a pin back to it to make it a festive pin! : )
How I Designed This
I used Blender to make my default pumpkin. My faces came from either Blender or from the Shapeways 2D to 3D App (we converted black and white Sharpie drawings).
I set my faces up so they end 2.5mm up and then I subtracted the face from my pumpkin template.

It's easy to carve out new pumpkin faces, so let me know if you want to make a custom face!
