197 Times People Approached Pumpkin Carving On Their Own Terms And The Results Were Awesome

Pumpkin carving is what you make of it. It’s a fun (family) activity that helps you get into the Halloween spirit and is a great way to express your creativity, too.

The best thing about it is the freedom: you can go for something playful like your favorite meme, or a scary zombie, it’s all up to you.
