Get a variety of pumpkins in different colours, shapes, and sizes, such as Cinderella, sugar, and ghost pumpkins. Carve them into spooky or silly faces and display them on your front porch or inside your home. Make sure you choose a safe location to carve your pumpkins and always use a serrated knife. If you're not a fan of carving, you can also paint or decoupage your pumpkins with glitter, sequins, or tissue paper.
