Spooktacular Halloween Pumpkin Carving & Decorating Ideas

I'm taking a break from our paver walkway updates for a little Halloween fun.  You've already the Schnauzer shaped doggy pumpkin I made for Halloween, but check out some of the other "great pumpkin ideas I've come across:

Pumpkins and squash combined efforts to make these cute mushroom shaped pumpkins:

I love this DIY knock-off version of the Pottery Barn Kids Build-A-Pumpkin kit.  I like Lindsay's version even better than the original!

Pumpkin fun doesn't have to end on Halloween, these cute mini pumpkins candle holders can be used throughout the fall and would look great on a Thanksgiving table: 

Pumpkins don't have to be orange either, these black and white bedazzled pumpkins look both fun and spooky:

Gourds can have some Halloween fun too, I love these white ghoulish gourds:

If you like more traditional pumpkins, Better Homes & Gardens and Martha Stewart offer some great free printable pumpkin carving templates. Have any other great pumpkin ideas?  Please leave a comment to share!
