The 31 year old and her son Leighton, eight, set about giving her 3.8 million Instagram followers a step by step tutorial on how to make a universe pumpkin, and the result were incredible.

Captioning the footage, Stacey wrote: “Leighton saw a universe pumpkin so wanted to try it…”

Then she showed how Leighton began by cutting off the back of the pumpkin, then scraping out all of the seeds and mush inside.


After this her second eldest son set about using a drill to make small holes in the large fruit.

Next Leighton drew on a planet, and scraped it with a spoon but “not all the way”.

For the final step, the duo were intending on using a bat-shaped cookie cutter to easily create the bat.

However, Stacey conceded that you must “cut out the bat because the internet is lying when it says you can push a cookie cutter through a pumpkin”.

When it was done, they put tea lights inside and headed to the darkest room in the house to see the fruits of their labour… and it looked amazing.

Stacey captioned the post writing: “Done! We had to go into the bathroom to see it properly because it’s the only room with no windows.
