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.

Thanks all for your fabulous pumpkin pics, we have made a gallery on Pinterest if you wanted to have a look/ share with your friends.

Please do keep uploading your pics.
Happy halloween grin

RebeccaMumsnet how did you do it on an iPad? I didn't think it could be done.

I was sooooo proud of mine....until I saw the rest! Gives me inspiration for next year though!

I printed off a template, sellotaped it to my pumpkin, went round outline making holes with a kitchen skewer then joined up the holes with a little screwdriver.

A green pumpkin.

And the kids from last year, have spent all morning making this year's, I now have a bruised wrist from hollowing them out!

ZombTEE Tue 30-Oct-12 13:52:11

These are really good!

That's mine. I have no idea what that indentation between the eyes is...

AmberLeaf Tue 30-Oct-12 13:54:39

These are brilliant! and pictures in posts shock wow! is that just for this topic?

AWimbaWay Tue 30-Oct-12 14:15:16

Whilst on the topic of pumpkins, I've just made soup with the mountains of scooped out flesh but it tastes really bland. I added onion, coriander, coconut milk, vegetable stock cube, a blob of butter and pepper, what else can I add to give it more substance and taste?

DP did this one freehand last year - I was vair impressed! We had no candles in the house, hence the upside-down lamp sticking out of the top!

OttersPocket Tue 30-Oct-12 14:25:45

Oh bugger - that didn't seem to work.

OttersPocket Tue 30-Oct-12 14:26:31

Oh, it did work - argh! Ignore me confused blush

AWimbaWay Tue 30-Oct-12 14:41:31

i didn't think mine had worked at first either OttersPocket, obviously takes a while for the pics to load.

AWimbaWay Tue 30-Oct-12 16:30:50

This years.

Last year's.

I'm currently knitting an ear for a Werepumpkin - will get that, plus its friends Pharoah Pump-Hotep, Vlad Pumpkin and Frankenstein's Pumpkin, up when finished.
