Looking for an extra spooky DIY project this year? Check out these step-by-step instructions and create your very own propane tank pumpkins!
Step One: Find an old propane tank.
Once you’ve acquired a propane tank, make certain you purge the tank of all flammable gasses. We recommend finding a tank that has been unused for a long period of time. Wash the tank with soap and water a few times to ensure there are no flammable gasses left over.
Step Two: Pick out a face design for your jack-o-lantern.
We suggest checking out Forney’s Pinterest page for more inspiration!
Step Three: Trace your design on to the propane tanks with a permanent marker or soapstone.
Step Four: Using your plasma cutter, begin cutting out your design.
If the pieces don’t come out easily, use a chipping hammer to help knock them loose.
Pro Tip: If your pieces still won’t come out after using your chipping hammer, your cut may not have penetrated all the way through.
Step Five: Cut a hole in the top so you can add a candle or firewood to light up your jack-o-lantern!
Optional Step: Paint the tank to give your jack-o-lantern even more character!
