11 Fun Pumpkin Ideas

 

Carved gourds
Funny Face

No need to use a template—these goofy jack-o'-lanterns are all about the charm of imperfection.

Here's how: For indented (debossed) designs, as on the dark green gourds, draw a face with a grease pencil. Using a lino cutter, scrape off pumpkin skin inside the marks about 1/8 inch deep to expose the flesh underneath. For white squash, cut hole in the bottom and scoop out pulp. Then draw a face and cut out shapes with a serrated carving knife.
