Pumpkin Carving Made Easy

Pumpkin carving can be fun, but it can also be a huge hassle. From deciding what to carve to beginning the carving, the whole process can be more daunting than enjoyable if you let it. Thankfully, we’ve taken some of the creative guesswork out of it for you. Here are three simple, adorable designs to inspire pumpkin carving genius!

Medusa Pumpkin

Grab two rubber or plastic snakes along with your pumpkin and carving materials for this design. First, carve a scary-looking face. Then, cut two holes in the top of the pumpkin to place the fake snakes in, so they look like Medusa’s hair. If you’d like, you can also place green gemstones in the eyes to imitate Medusa’s hypnotizing and deadly gaze. Make sure not to look right in her eyes, or you might turn to stone on Halloween night.

Lion Pumpkin

This lion design is both ferocious and stunning. Begin by carving the lion’s eyes and mouth with sharp teeth. You can color the eyes and nose by painting them on. For the beautiful mane, stick orange and yellow fake chrysanthemums around its face. Place a few chrysanthemum petals around the mouth in order to create matching whiskers. This lion pumpkin is sure to be the most handsome and vibrant one in the neighborhood.

Lollipop Pumpkin

Both functional and adorable, this pumpkin doubles as a lollipop holder. Start by carving a happy, smiling face on the pumpkin. Then cut as many holes as you feel you’ll need, and make sure they’re wide enough for your lollipop stems to go through. Cut the holes all around the face of the pumpkin, so it looks like the pumpkin’s hair is made of them. Once you’re finished, place your pumpkin where you can easily reach it so you can enjoy the lollipops throughout this spooky season.

Place these beautiful pumpkin creations proudly on your front steps, fireplace, or wherever you think you’ll enjoy them the most! They’re sure to get a smile from anyone who sees them.
