It's that time of the year when trees' leaves are turning gold, and grass color is fading, and we all go buy pumpkins to paint and carve in all kinds of creative ways to decorate house and porch. I personally prefer painting since it's not as messy as carving. But carving is what really shows one's artistic skills. Here are a few I found on the web.
Carved & Painted Flower Skull Pumpkin
I love this design because it's very happy unlike many other designs that are very spooky, creepy and scary.
Sugar Skull Pumpkin
I like the fact that they are carved & painted. I'd use brighter colors though to really celebrate the Day of the Dead colorful design.
Sharpy Owls. There's even a DIY instruction on this site on how to make one. Or two...or three...
This one looks like a flour dusted pumpkin owl.

My Favorite: Jack Skellington Pumpkin
I actually once carved and painted a Jack Skellington pumpkin myself. Just can't find pictures of it anymore. Here's my favorite - it's simple, and I may actually do it again this year.
Steampunk Pumpkin ( or Steampunkins?)
I'm not sure how these are made, but if you are really into steampunk, you'll figure it out.
Hipster Pumpkins (or less is more?)
I bet Brooklyn will have them everywhere, lol.
