Forget wizards and witches. This Halloween, we’re putting the magic back where it belongs— out in front of your house with the FIAT ® 500 Abarth and a custom-made pumpkin stencil courtesy of the FIAT brand.
Follow the 5 simple steps below and we guarantee your pumpkin will be among the most revered in the neighborhood. When you’re finished carving, upload a picture of your pumpkin to any social channel (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Google+) using the hashtag #Abarthcadabra. We’ll highlight our favorites and reward the best with loads of FIAT brand swag.
Step 1: Select your pumpkin
Be sure to pick one that’s worthy of the FIAT 500 Abarth. Trust us—the right pumpkin will make itself known to you from the pumpkin patch. Listen closely for its call (it might be in Italian).
Step 2: Ready your pumpkin for carving
Cut a hole into the top of your pumpkin by running a knife in a circle around the stem. The hole should be large enough for you to get your hand in. Scrape out the insides with a spoon, reserving the seeds for later roasting. Here’s a recipe. Enjoy.
Step 3: Trace a stencil on your pumpkin
Download one of our FIAT-brand stencils (see below) for tracing onto your pumpkin’s carving surface. OR, take a stab at creating a design of your own.
Step 4: Begin carving your Pumpkin
Go slowly. Be careful. Stay focused. No amount of Halloween glory is worth a trip to the emergency room.
Step 5: Illuminate your pumpkin
Place a tea-light candle inside the pumpkin. Light the candle carefully. We repeat: No amount of Halloween glory is worth a trip to the emergency room.
Remember to snap a picture of your pumpkin once it’s carved and lighted. Upload the picture to social media (#Abarthcadabra) for a chance to be rewarded for your pumpkin carving skills.
Happy carving, everyone!
