Use several pumpkins to create the word/phrase of your choice. This is a great option if you don’t trust your carving skills! What’s great about this design is that you can be completely original and can create multiple Halloween phrases.

  1. Harry Potter Themed Pumpkins

Calling all devoted Harry Potter fans to try out these cool pumpkin designs! Although these pumpkin are incredibly well done, they tend to be very difficult to make, so make sure you have confidence in your skills before attempting these magical designs.


  1. Stem Nosed Pumpkins

Put a spin on the classic jack-o-lantern by carving the top of the pumpkin rather than the side by using the stem as a nose for your pumpkin. The only downside to this design  is that you cannot light it from the inside.
