Tired of the same old Jack-o-latern that your carve up each year? We have rounded up some great alternatives to your traditional carved pumpkin. Beware – some of these styles are not for the newbie DIY-er.
Pumpkins With Scary Etchings (via Martha Stewart):
To render the glowing silhouettes, two techniques were used: The bright candelabrum and goblet are cut through the pumpkins’ walls, while the textured quill and skull are pared gently from the outer shells. Pumpkins of different hues, including white ‘Lumina,’ a green-gray ‘Jarrahdale,’ and burnt-orange cheese pumpkins, add tonal variety.
