What are some creative pumpkin carving ideas?

One of the most enjoyable aspects of Halloween is carving pumpkins. Carving Jack o’ Lanterns is a quintessential tradition, but now many people use their creative ideas to carve their pumpkins into absolute masterpieces. If you still want to carve a face there are many different things you can do to make your lantern unique like changing the shape and size of his facial features, changing his expression, and adding glasses, eyelashes, or hair. If you want to go for a lantern that does not have good ol’ Jack’s face on it then the possibilities are endless. Staying with the Halloween theme some carving ideas include: Frankenstein, ghosts, a witch on a broom stick, a witch’s face, a cat, a mummy, a zombie, an owl, a skeleton, a skull, and the face of any evil character from a scary movie. Essentially, if you can draw it then you can carve it. However, be aware that carving a detailed and extravagant pumpkin requires more time, effort, and skill. Using stencils, drawing the design on the pumpkin first, and using several carving knives of different sizes will help you to create your prefect pumpkin lantern masterpiece.
