Pumpkin-Carving Ideas

Pumpkin Patterns That Put Jack-o'-Lanterns to Shame

Inspired by bold textiles and wallpaper designs, the pumpkin-carving projects in the October issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine feel like they were made just for us. We love the repeating patterns and the way each pumpkin is matched with a design that highlights its best features. Successful pumpkin carving is about figuring out which patterns work best with which pumpkins, and as usual, the queen of craft nailed it!

Is it just us or does this spooky pattern remind you of an Alexander McQueen print?

We love the idea of incorporating a design over two pumpkins, and nothing is sweeter than that little owl.

Inspired by art nouveau stained glass lamp shades, the pattern on this pumpkin is concentrated at the top. It may be floral, but there is something sinister about those vines!
