Pumpkin Ideas

It has been raining here all day thanks to hurricane/tropical storm whatever his name is.  It is dark and damp and I would probably really enjoy it if I wasn't also sick with some sweet virus my son brought home from school the first week.  So instead of some great craft I searched all over the web to find you, you get pumpkins.  Cute jack-o-lanterns from two of my favorite places to find jack-o-lanter ideas.

Better Homes and Gardens and Country Living!

I fell in love with the haunted house pumpkin when I saw it a few weeks ago and thought for sure that would be my pumpkin this year:

But then of course I found the whole village of haunted house pumpkins. More is always better where pumpkins are concerned:

But the flames in the fireplace and the the lanterns are pretty clever too:

Add this can be added to the irrational wish list.  Not because the pumpkin tree would be hard to make, but because I would need to buy a tall skinny bookshelf to put it on:

And then there are the skeletons coming our from the ground:

Who wouldn't love a skeleton crawling out of their front yard?

Of course, if you want something a little more tame than the dead rising from your yard, you can always go with a cute pair of witch legs:

Or this cat and mouse idea:

What is your jack-o-lantern tradition in your house?  Do you carve faces?  Does everyone get their own pumpkin?  Who is the official carver?
