Our favourite pumpkin carvings

If your social plans are looking a little quiet, how about you dedicate your time to creating this masterpiece! Your efforts wouldn’t go unnoticed with this brilliant pumpkin twist on the day of the dead.

A popular style with pumpkins is jagged, sharp teeth with some triangular eyes. Well how about this year you get rid of the eyes all together and carve out one huge mouth with even bigger teeth! This is what another excellent carver has done to creative a menacing looking pumpkin that you’ll really want to sink your creative teeth into!

Who said pumpkins have to be scary anyway?! Why not carve lots of little circles and shapes into your pumpkin and make your own little orange disco ball? We think it looks great and casts beautiful patterns onto the adjacent walls.

We love great art here at Dawn and this pumpkin is no exception. This incredibly detailed Keith Haring inspired carving is totally out of the ordinary and creates an amazing pattern. It also reminds us of some of Yayoi Kusama’s designs. Good luck if you’re going to try and re-create this effort!

Remember, you don’t have to cut all the way into the pumpkin to make the light shine through. You can see some pretty cool effects by carving through the surface at different depths, to get a more subtle look. This incredible Pennywise pumpkin does this pretty well!
