Other fun pumpkin carvings

pumpkin spider head bt patrick harrison

Patrick Harrison cleverly used the shape of the pumpkin to make it look like a spider on top of a goofy head. I’m not sure who looks more surprised the spider or the face.

Is that a spider on your head or are you just glad it’s Halloween? – Patrick Harrison

gourd face by patrick harrison

Another of Patrick Harrison’s imaginative gourd faces.

rotting skull by Joaquin Cortez

The blackish mold only adds to the creepiness of this skull pumpkin sculpture

Decay has set in quick. – Joaquin Cortez

dinosaur pumpkin by Jess Parrish

Jess Parrish carved this giant pumpkin into a dinosaur head. The curious “chicks” are an adorable addition to the photo!

devil pumpkin by david smith

David Smith created this devilish pumpkin sculpture.

I’ve been fortunate to have met 4 of the above artists at competitions or when we carved at the White House a few years back. The rest, I’ve admired from afar.

These are just a few of the fantastic pumpkin sculptures created by a few of the best pumpkin carvers in the country during the 2016 Halloween pumpkin carving season. I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing these fun pumpkin sculptures.

    These are wonderful and done by all great carvers. So lucky to be in an area where they get the freeze/frost. Pumpkins grow so much bigger and last longer then a day. South Florida is not the place for such wonderful fun. 10 – 20 lbs. is about the max here in the tropics LOL. Love watching these guys work.
