As Halloween is going to look different this year, I thought it might be fun to share some bookish pumpkins with you that may inspire you to try something new this year! Most of these are way outside my skillset (okay all of them are!), but they are so fun to look at!
Do you carve pumpkins? Do you have any go-to designs? I am thinking about painting pumpkins this year. I found some inspiration on Pinterest, and I will update you and let you know how it goes! Here is what I am going to attempt to do:
Doesn’t that look cool?! And I think it is relatively easy.

I don’t anymore, I think I did when I was a kid. It is so much fun to look at them and appreciate the hard work that people put into carving them.
So glad you enjoyed it!
I’d love to do a bookish pumpkin but I have no skill so my sister just does ones she thinks are creepy.
I don’t think we’re doing one this year though boo.
I don’t blame you. It’s a strange year!
Those pumpkins are incredible! I could never haha. The last time I carved a pumpkin was maybe three years ago. I carved an owl into it. It was so frustrating that I almost gave up.
Aren’t they?! I’ve tried to do one of those intricate carvings too and it is frustrating!
All the best to you.. waiting for the outcome👍🏼
I will definitely post the results!!
Cool ideas! That Cheshire Cat is spot on. Nice post!
I love that one!
They all look so amazing! 😍 Thank you for sharing them!
You’re so welcome. They put a smile on my face, so thought I’d share!
I have never carved a pumpkin and honestly wouldn’t know where to start. I am not very good at arty things so it would very probably be a disaster. My brother on the other hand is absolutely brilliant. He takes requests each year from his nieces with last year’s the Golden Snitch and a mermaid. I’m very jealous of people who can do this.
Ah that’s so cool that your brother can do that. I have tried to be more fancy but the classic jack o lantern face is about all I can manage. I’m hoping painting them is easier!
These are SO cool, if only I had the tiniest bit of artistic ability! 😅
Hahah this is why I think the drip painting might be doable!
Wow! That looks so cool! I can’t wait to see how it turns out! 😄
I’ve done Jack Skellington in the past. I hope to carve a pumpkin this year! Not sure what I’ll do though!
I love that! You’ll have to share what you end up doing!
When I buy Pumpkins, it’s mostly so I can get the pumpkin seeds and roast them!
Yum. Love pumpkin seeds!
I would love the idea of carving pumpkins; but the idea of the mess involved and me lacking any creativeness for it keeps me from doing it. I’d probably just carve random pumpkin faces in them. I wish I had the skill set to do bookish related pumpkins though!
It really is messy!!
All of the bookish pumpkins look so cool! And the painted ones are so interesting as well!! I always carve pumpkins with my family, but I’ve never painted one. I think that my sister has though!
I love how creative people are. I found so many different ways of decorating pumpkins!
Painted pumpkins look so amazing 😍 I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I would like to do an Animal Crossing themed pumpkin this year but we shall see 😊
Ohhh an animal crossing pumpkin would be so cute!
This is amazing
Those painted pumpkins looks so pretty!! I wish I could carve a pumpkin this year but who knows. We still have time 😄
