Halloween Pumpkin Carving Ideas

Pumpkin Carving is a must-do activity for Halloween, and it's something the whole family can get involved with! This year, why not push your creative limits and try something a bit different? Here are some of our favourites:

Witch's Nose Pumpkin

Flip your pumpkin on its side this year to use the stalk as a creepy nose, and carve your pumpkin around it. How clever!

Toothpick pumpkin

If you're not advanced enough to carve out teeth, use toothpicks instead! Simple yet effective, and great for kids.

Boo! pumpkin

Simple, yet brilliantly eye catching! For kids, why not spell out their name or your initials? Yes, it might take a lot of pumpkins, but worth it for the impact!

Cat pumpkin

Because Halloween doesn't have to be scary, why not make a cute animal instead!

Nemo pumpkin

Speaking of cute, this Nemo design requires the minimum amount of carving, it's been painted instead! So adorable!

Cannibal pumpkin

This one is super cool for older kids - cute and evil at the same time!

Warning: Pumpkin carving involves using a sharp knife, so kids should get grown-ups to help!
