5 Creative Pumpkin Carvings That You Can Do at Home

Posted by Mary Fischer on October 12, 2012 at 3:00 PM

We only have a couple of weeks to go before Halloween, so if you haven't made a visit to the pumpkin patch yet, this weekend is definitely an ideal time to go with your family. And while pumpkins look great on your front stoop even if they aren't carved, giving them a bit of character is always a fun way to dress up the front of your house in the spirit of all things spooky.

Traditional jack o'lanterns are always a good, standard option, especially if pumpkin carving isn't exactly your forte. But if you really want to step outside of the box and make your house stand out from all the rest, you can put your creativity to the test by carving your pumpkin in a unique and clever way.

Take a look at these photos to see five fun and different ways to carve your pumpkins this year.

How do you plan on carving your Halloween pumpkins?

We have some cute stencils we got that I think we will be using on a couple of the pumpkins. We need to pick up a couple more first.

Well, we were suppose to get one today for dh to carve tonight but apparently he didn't want to carve one, so we aren't carving one this year.

I love carving! I think I may try the cookie cutter idea this year!
