For this pumpkin I decided to go with our house numbers since we don’t have an illuminated sign at night. I printed out some numbers onto regular paper (just using Powerpoint).

I used a ball point pen to trace them.  A little bit of pressure leaves enough indentation to use as a guide:

Add a flameless candle and ready to go!

The great part is that I can re-use it year after year:
