Tired of the same old jack-o'-lantern? Try these pumpkin-carving patterns for a new twist on your Halloween gourd.
The old triangle-eyed pumpkin has its charm, but for a jack-o'-lantern unlike any other on the block, try our mix-and-match templates.
The stippled skins of this "One Too Many" pumpkin are adorned with marbleized Florentine-paper leaves and millinery-wire tendrils. Mini "White Ball" gourds nestle at their feet, while "Baby Boo" pumpkins find a spot at the table as place markers.
Because none of the pumpkins in this subtly colored centerpiece are carved, they can last well into the fall, perhaps even until Thanksgiving.
Legend has it that the luckless souls who hear the Three Squashes' song of woe shall vanish into the nearest vegetable patch, never to be seen or heard from again. Since narrow squashes are easier to hollow out if you work from both ends, these guys had the tops of their heads cut off.
Not one but five apple gourds, which have an unpleasantly mottled hue, lie in wait on this sill. Their shifty glances and tormented frowns were carved to look similar -- yet not quite the same. A bed of dead branches ensures this vengeful band will get no sleep.
This ravenous pumpkin is cursed: He must offer up sweets to children all evening, yet he is not allowed to eat them (neither the sweets nor the children). A treat-filled bowl was placed in his cavernous mouth, and miniature flashlights were tucked on either side, against his jowls.
