Creative Pumpkins

Want to do something a little different with your jack-o-lanterns this year?  Here are a few ideas.

Stalloween.com has a step by step tutorial on how to make these creepy pumpkins from papier mache.  {link}

If that's a little too scary you HallmarkMagazine.com has a how to for a variety of fantasy pumpkins.  {link}

However, if you're itching to do something completely different this year you can print out these patterns for Campaign-o-Lanterns from the Associated Press.  {link}

Enjoy! And happy pumpkin carving!

OMG, that fantasy pumpkin is the cutest thing! I think if I did it, I would use some of the fake carvable pumpkins so it would last. It would make an adorable nightlight in a princess room!

I have a program I got a few years ago to change your digital photos into pumpkin carving templates. I NEED to use it! I ♥ carving intricate pumpkins, time just passes me by too fast this time of year!

Woah, woah, woah! I am so impressed with the campaign o'lanterns! And I'm totally stealing the pic and putting it on MY blog, too. Nice work. Good stuff.
