Have you been growing a whopper of a pumpkin for Halloween? Or shop bought is fine

Do you and your DC carve a Jack O' Lantern every year? Or do you just want to show off your artistic brilliance?

Upload a picture of your pumpkin here for us all to howl ogle over and any top carving tips/pumpkin recipes you have, do share.

Too early for this years, so I've uploaded a previous effort

Pumpkins I've carved in the last 5 years

Oh tizwoz - I love the stars one! I may steal that idea this year!

Too early for this year (and I suspect I won't do one this year due to imminent arrival of DC1!) So this is last year's effort..

This is my first ever attempt at carving something other than a scary face. It was from last year and friends/family/trick or treaters were very impressed.

Liking all the other ideas on here, I will have to get my ideas planned - I want to do 2 this year for on top of the porch.

Great idea about battery operated tea lights - thank you smile

These are brilliant!

Pinterest is great for ideas too if you need inspiration.
