I usually buy pumpkins that we can use year after year. Sometimes we end up with a fresh one too. Here is a selection from Michaels this year:
To carve the foam pumpkin it’s helpful to have a heated craft knife. It cuts it like a knife through butter:

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:
