    This pumpkin is a little creepy... but certainly gets an A+ for creativity!

  3. Drunk on Seeds

    Drunk on Seeds

    Someone got a little excited a little too early. We like this one a) for its humor and b) come on, when's the next time you'll ever see a sick, puking pumpkin? We're sure this inspired copycats all over the nation.

  4. Osama bin... Pumpkin??

    Osama bin... Pumpkin??

    We're not sure why anyone would be inspired to have OBL on his or her doorstep even if it is for Halloween but hey, to each his own.

  5. Anger Management

    Anger Management

    This pumpkin-man seems to have gotten a little angry and taken it out on his other pumpkin friends. NOT COOL.

  6. It's a Pumpkin Eat Pumpkin World

    It's a Pumpkin Eat Pumpkin World

    What can we say? It's hard out there for a pumpkin.

  7. Close Your Eyes

    Close Your Eyes

    Don't look! Oh... too late. They got you.

  8. Eek!


    Creepy. Don't want to run into him in a dark alley.

  9. Night and Day

    Night and Day

    If I were the pumpkin on the right side, I'd be making that face too.

  10. Uhoh!


    The pumpkin ran away with the baby. If you like dark humor, I guess?

  11. Mr. Potatohead Meets Pumpkins

    While this doesn't look like it took a lot of skill, it's still pretty cute.

  12. Look Out

    Look Out

    These guys are going to get you!

  13. 'Predator'


    I have no words for this one. I can't even look at it it gives me the creeps.

  14. Hamburger Helper

    See, there's a pumpkin for everyone.

  15. Zip Up

    This one's done by Ray Villafane. You can see more of his wacky and awesome stuff here: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/39527582/ns/today-today_halloween_guide/.

  16. Hannibal


    And last but not least, we leave you with a Hannibal Lecter pumpkin. Hannibal likes humans, so make sure if you stumble upon him in your trick-or-treating adventures you steer clear.

Pumpkin Carving for Halloween: Do You Go for Scary or Funny Faces?
Add Photos & Videos
I started carving pumpkins before I learned my multiplication tables.

Every year it was tradition in my family that I carved the pumpkins that would sit on our front doorstep. Sadly, the only ones that saw the pumpkins were me, a few moths and the lone UPS truck driver or plumber -- our driveway was super long, windy, steep and scary and we didn't get a lot of trick-or-treaters -- but this didn't stop me from honing my craft. I won a pumpkin-carving contest in the third (or was it fourth?) grade for my pumpkin covered in cottonballs. I called him "Snowman" and he even had a carrot nose to boot.

So it's only appropriate that the first Halloween-themed post from SodaHead fun be about pumpkins and the best creative carvings I've come across online.

Send us some of yours and we'll compare notes.

  • Stacey 2010/10/27 03:24:29
    They're not scary at all! I'm 19 so that may have influenced my answer, but I can completely understand younger children finding them a little scary.

    It's a fricken vegtable you idiot, that is something you eat.
    Just because you carve something in it you think it is scarey? We still eat it.

    Must be a third grader asking this question, or a college student!!!!!

    Becase someone with common sense wouldn't ask this question.

    We had a large pumpkin eating a smaller one, using the insides of the smaller one to look like the blood and guts of it. It's just like making a snowman, you just need to unleash your creative side. lol

    I like both. Something to crack me up and another to make me go "Hot damn, that looks real." Halloween is the best holiday ever.
