Our top 7 favorite pumpkin carving ideas

BOURBONNAIS, IL – Halloween is just a week away! Have you carved your pumpkins yet? If not we have found a few great ideas to start with. We have a few easy, traditional and even some super fancy ideas. We hope that you enjoy spending some time with your loved ones carving/ designing your pumpkins and preparing for Halloween.

1.) From the Project Nursery blog we have a DIY tutorial for how to use glitter to decorate your pumpkins. This falls under the “easy” category and is great for those looking for a cleaner and safer option.


2.) How about using Duck Tape to decorate you pumpkins? Also in the “easy category this idea comes from creatingreallyawesomefreethings.com!


3.) How about this one for the “easy” category? Just spray paint! These are made to look like the ever so popular Halloween staple Candy Corn! Pumpkin-Carving-Ideas_08

4.) From Women’s Day magazine we have “7 Creative Pumpkin-Carving Concepts“. Our favorite is the “Sweet Hearts” pumpkins used by taking two pumpkins, carving traditional Jack-O-Lantern faces and making them “kiss”! How cute!


5.) Here is a twist to the “traditional” pumpkin. How about adding some spiders! Scary!

6.) This is a Pinterest favorite that we have put into the “Super Fancy” category. All you need is your pumpkin, drill, drill bits (use these sizes: 3/16, 1/4, 7/16), scissors, carving knife, and a scooping spoon. A few suggested items include glow sticks, flowers, painter’s tape, votives, glass jar but are not needed.


7.) And finally the movie of 2014, Frozen inspired Olaf pumpkin! We know we are going to be seeing a lot of Anna’s and Elsa’s this year. Why not include Olaf in the celebrations!
