Pumpkin Carving Ideas

I'm having a pumpkin carving party tonight. I suspect we'll get a whole bunch of crazy pumpkins. Last year we had multiple sugar skulls. I'm interested to see what people come up with this year.

In case you need a little help deciding what to carve on your pumpkin this year. Here are some suggestions with instructions and stencils too.

Anatomy Pumpkins from Brit + Co

These anatomy pumpkins from Brit + Co are sufficiently creepy. I love the lungs, but it looks like pretty finicky cutting work; I wonder if my skills are up to it. Also you can find a round up of great stencils from Brit + Co here.

Frankenstein's Monster Pumpkin from Better Homes and Gardens

I love the creepy cuteness of this Frankenstein's Monster Pumpkin from Better Homes and Gardens. It would make me happier if they realized this isn't actually Frankenstein, but the monster Frankenstein made, but you can't have it all. Click through the slideshow for lots more stencils of ideas ranging from simple to complex.

Cross Stitch Pumpkins from Design*Sponge

Design*Sponge has a tutorial for Cross Stitch Pumpkins! Aren't these amazing? I'm pretty much in love with them.

Still looking for some more ideas? I've got a bunch more pinned on my Halloween Pinterest Board.

  1. Great ideas. I'm not carving this year as the whole family are of in different states this year. Next year though! Happy Halloween!
