Pumpkins are the icon of the Halloween. So use them. There are so many ways to carve, draw or set them to make great decorations for the home. Here’s some quick ideas for this year’s Halloween home decor.
If you want a more complicated Halloween face, use the many stencils out there to trace the more intricate designs on the pumpkin. Then use the tracing to carve out the design.
Try stacking the pumpkins vertically. The designs are limitless. One example is to create a body made of pumpkins. Stack five vertically. Use the top as the face and the ones below as different designs for the body.
You can go in all sorts of directions with that arrangement. From buttons, belly button, bikini, bowtie, etc. And each idea can either be cut for the design to be lit or drawn or using the actual items.
Go the other way and place pumpkins in a horizontal line and design from there. One example is use the first pumpkin carved like Pac Man and smaller pumpkins as the dots proceeding.
Drill them. Use a drill or something similar to drill holes that act as the outline. Creates a different design while still being dramatic with the flame or light shining through.
Use letters. Carve in one letter per pumpkin and place them accordingly. Have three pumpkins for the word “boo” for instance.
Accessorize. Use outside elements to add some flare. Use a hat, cigar, stick hands, arrow, etc.
