Celebrity Pumpkin

Make a statement with your pumpkin this year and carve a world leader, historical figure or your favorite celebrity's face. (Brad Pitt on your doorstep? Why not!)

There's a good change there's a stencil already available of the celebrity you want to carve as a celeb-o-lantern. Or search the Web to find and download celebrity photos to use as templates for your pumpkin masterpiece.

Consider:

  • Politicians
  • Writers
  • Comedians
  • Athletes
  • Musicians
  • Models
  • Cartoon characters
  • Actors
  • Famous dancers or theater performers
  • Inventors

Or, Go Loyal

Don't have a favorite celeb, but are brand loyal? What about a Nike swoosh or a Dolce & Gabbana logo? Or, go the alumni route and carve your school's mascot.
