The Most Creative Pumpkin Carving Ideas

We love decorating for Halloween, but sometimes coming up with cool pumpkin carving ideas can be so hard. We don’t want to just go get a template like every other house on the block, we need to get creative.

It is one thing though, to think of a creative pumpkin idea to carve, but they need to be easy too! Not only are these pumpkin ideas totally creative, I think for the most part, I could actually pull these off…. maybe not Tinkerbell, but I think I could do any of the others!

Pumpkin carving in my house can be a bit of a disaster, if you missed my post on Pumpkin Carving Hacks – be sure to check it out – there are some great ideas there that I think will make this year better than ever!!

Not in the mood to clean out all of the pumpkin guts? No worries, we have some easy No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas for you too!

Let’s take a look at those creative pumpkin carving ideas:

Tinkerbell with Pixiedust from Makezine – Isn’t this just beautiful! It reminds me when we used to watch Disney movies on Sunday nights and Tinkerbell always flew across the screen before the movie started.

Hamburger Pumpkin – this pumpkin always cracks me up. It would be a really cute centerpiece for a Halloween party. Not sure I would leave it outside at night on my porch though.

  2. These are so cute! Do you have a link for the hamburger pumpkin? It seams to only go to the peek-aboo pumpkin and I’d love to make the hamburger one 😀 Thanks!
