Pumpkins are an iconic, orange symbol of autumn. They can be carved out to make beautiful lanterns, which once a candle is lit inside, create the ultimate ambience for Halloween celebrations. Nothing is wasted either, as the innards can be used to make a delicious Pumpkin Pie.
Why not invest in a pumpkin carving kit, as carving intricate designs can be tricky.
Go out and find the biggest pumpkin you can get your hands on, then decide which template you want to carve.
Be warned: You may want more than one pumpkin when you see these designs 🎃🎃🎃
