    5 Adorable Ideas for Your Pumpkin This Year!

    Ah, fall! There are so many great things about the autumn season, including (but not limited to) pumpkin lattes, comfy peacoats and falling into a big pile of colorful leaves. One of our favorite pastimes for this time of year is heading to the pumpkin patch, scouting a few favorites and then bringing them home for carving, painting and an all-around DIY good time. Is this something you and your family take part in? We went on a search for five awesome carvings posted online to help inspire you in your future carvings. Psst! Tag your pumpkin carving pics with #InspiredArt on Instagram or Facebook…we can’t wait to see what you come up with!



    Not so into carving? This guy looks awesome and requires very little cutting. It’s like the gingerbread house of Halloween: Stick the candy corns on with royal icing and you can have your pumpkin and eat it, too. (Squidoo.com)



    Rebecca Paiva took this picture at a festival and has tons of other pics of intricately carved pumpkins on her Flickr photo stream. We love this lit-up version that features clocks with little pumpkin faces. Obviously, this requires some serious skill and patience, but it definitely got our minds working (and watching YouTube carving videos!).



    This is an great little project for the whole family, and according to HomeMadeSimple, it’s not that hard to pull off. You take a picture, pinprick around the edges and scrape away the parts outside the lines. Then you can paint what’s left behind in whatever color you like (though black is traditional and stands out well).



    Looking to not carve…at all? Got little time on your hands? These pumpkins are totally cool and quick to make. Tightly stretch a lace or fishnet stocking over your pumpkin, secure it with a twist tie and spray paint it. Once dried, remove the lace to reveal a stunning design. Awesome, no? (HomeMadeSimple).



    This beautiful floral pattern looks tricky, but is actually a cinch with a downloadable template from Martha Stewart. The center of each flower requires a drill holl, so this pretty project is a great two-person activity for you and a friend or family member!
