- The worm-infested pumpkin. This great pumpkin carving design is a simple yet very creative idea. First, start by carving out the pumpkin as usual and carve whatever face design you choose. A scared or evil-looking face will go best. Then, make about six small holes in one area of the pumpkin's head and insert gummy worms. This gives the illusion of worms coming out of the pumpkin's head!
The puking pumpkin. This carving design for your pumpkin is a great way to creatively use the insides of the pumpkin that you scoop out. Start by hollowing out the pumpkin as you normally would, and saving the insides. Then, make a face as though the pumpkin is throwing up. This would involve a big open mouth and maybe slit eyes to make it look as though they are squeezed together. Then, take the insides you scooped out and put some in the mouth of the pumpkin and a pile outside of the pumpkin's mouth on the ground, or wherever you're displaying it, to give it the illusion of throwing up.
- The radioactive pumpkin. This pumpkin carving design option is a simple way to again take advantage of any type of face you want to carve on your pumpkin. Hollow out the pumpkin as usual, and then carve whatever face you choose. Then, take five or more non-toxic glow sticks, activate them, cut them open and then spread the liquid all on the inside as well as the outside of your pumpkin. This will give your pumpkin a radioactive glow. This is best done Halloween night, because the glow stick material will only glow for several hours.
The cannibal pumpkin. Start with a large pumpkin and hollow it out. When you carve the mouth, make it just large enough to fit your small pumpkin in so it's half in and half out of the mouth. Add some evil eyes to the big pumpkin and then start on the small one. The small pumpkin doesn't have to have an actual face, you can just carve some holes in the front and expose the inside, giving the illusion that the big pumpkin is biting down on the small one. This pumpkin carving design is a great way to make use of the tiny pumpkins available during the season.
- The pumpkin monster. Stack three pumpkins as if you're making a snowman. They can be held in place with a large stick in the ground and through each of them. Add two sticks for arms, and you can choose whether or not to carve anything on the bottom two. Carve a scary face on the top pumpkin. Take a pumpkin and carve a face in it, and then cut out the face from the pumpkin. Attach the face to one of the sticks of the stacked pumpkins to make it look as though he's torn the pumpkin apart. You can also choose to smash a few pumpkins around the monster for an even scarier sight. This creepy pumpkin carving design is one that allows you to make use of many pumpkins.
