Creative Halloween Pumpkin Ideas

This year, I want to move past the simple “2 eyes, a nose, and mouth” jack-o-lantern and get a little creative with my designs! From monograms to geometric patterns, I hope you will get creative this year too! Send us your pictures and you could be featured in an upcoming post. And hop over to our Seasonal Celebration Community where we’re chatting it up on fun pumpkin carvings!

I adore anything monogrammed so I think I will take a stab at a monogrammed pumpkin for sure. Who knows – Pizzazzerie may even get carved into a pumpkin! Thanks to the always fabulous Better Homes & Gardens for this how-to and template for monogrammed pumpkins.

  1. Monogrammed pumpkins!? Combining two of my favorite things :) Lovely post as always!

  2. I love pumpkins and the silver ones…are my fave! xo

  3. I am so with you here! Tired of the same ol same ol pumpkins….but they are FANTASTIC options! Love all the choices and styles.


  4. I agree, it’s time for something cuter than a rotting jack-o-lantern face!! I just bought the cutest pumpkins last night {at least I think they’re cute!} They are white but they have orange & green spots on them! LOVE them!!

  5. These are absolutely adorable! What fun ideas for Halloween pumpkin decorations.

  6. LOVE the geometric ones! Definitely giving it a try at our Pumpking Carving Contest in a couple of weeks!

    1. SO FUN! You should do a big W too, a big D doesn’t quite have the style that W does!
