Pumpkin Carving Ideas

WESTLAND, Mich. –– Halloween is right around the corner which means it's a great time to gather the kids, family and friends and carve pumpkins! Whether you prefer to stick with the traditional gap-toothed grin pumpkin, or are looking for something a little more interesting, we've got a few pumpkin carving ideas to get you inspired!

1. Cookie Monster
This idea is super easy and fun to do. All you need is blue paint, styrofoam balls, a black marker and cookies! This would be a great table decoration to serve cookies, or even look good on your porch with cookies not intended for little hands to eat.

2.  Monsters, Inc. 
If you or your kids are big fans of Monsters, Inc., this pumpkin carving idea is perfect! The best part about this idea is that it actually doesn't require carving - all you need is paint and/or permanent markers!

3. The Sick Pumpkin
Looking to gross out any trick-or-treaters that stop by? Why not give this sick pumpkin a try! After you carve out the face, pull some of the pumpkins innards out to make it look like a 'sick' pumpkin - gross!

4. The Owl Pumpkin
This pumpkin is a cute idea for those that aren't looking to spook or terrify. It works best with an oblong pumpkin, however, it's easy with any pumpkin and/or gourd.

When you spend a good amount of time carving your pumpkin, you want it to last as long as possible. That's why we recommend dipping your pumpkin in a large container of bleach and water (1 tsp. bleach per gallon of water). The bleach will kill bacteria and keep your pumpkin looking fresh! If you'd like to preserve your pumpkin even longer, brush a 2 tbsp. vinegar and 1 tsp. lemon juice mixture on your dry pumpkin every other day to keep it fresh for weeks.
