We are well into October and before you know it, Halloween will be here! Better scurry over to the pumpkin patch before the pickins get slim. While tradition has it, people have been picking pumpkins and carving scary faces into them for decades. In more recent years, the customary scary side of Halloween has gravitated towards the direction of humor and fun; cue The Mario Brother’s and Salt & Peper Shaker’s!

For the youngest of Halloween fans, carving a pumpkin can be quite tricky, not to mention mom and dad probably aren’t letting them too close to the carving tools. As a result, alternate pumpkin decorating has come forward in a multitude of ways incorporating crafty ideas for the family. Look at the fun ideas we’ve found!
