What happens when you put Donald Trump's face and put it on a pumpkin? You get what is known as a "Trumpkin."

Jeanette Paras, a resident of Dublin, Ohio, a suburb of the state's capital of Columbus, has painted Trump's face on a 374-pound pumpkin. The pumpkin has caused a spectacle, with appearances on national television, and shared by thousands on social media. 

Paras said on her Facebook page that she opts to paints pumpkin and accent them with wigs rather than carve them to preserve the pumpkin. 

"The identity of the pumpkin(s) are top secret and highly anticipated from year to year," Paras said. "The annual unveiling on our front porch just before Beggars Night has become a favorite community tradition."

Paras has painted other pumpkins in the likeness of other celebrities including Jay Leno, Steve Jobs, Betty White and Barack Obama.
