Funny Pumpkin Carving Ideas
1. Hungry pumpkin
Amanda carved this very hungry pumpkin! Simply carve a scary face into a large orange pumpkin. Then, add a smaller pumpkin inside of the larger pumpkins mouth. Be sure to use the smaller pumpkins stem as the nose so that it will fit inside the mouth of the larger pumpkin.
2. Puking Pumpkin
3. Eyeball pumpkin
Bee Moon Sketches created this amazing eyeball pumpkin by carving a large oval in the orange pumpkin. Next, paint an eyeball on a white pumpkin and place it inside the orange pumpkin. So clever!
4. Nerdy Pumpkin
The nerdy pumpkin takes some serious carving skills, but it’s worth it! It doesn’t get much better than a pumpkin with braces and glasses.
5. Toothy grin pumpkin
Turn the pumpkin on its side and use the stem as a nose! This pumpkin is creepy perfection. (Picture found via Curious Bird.)
