This stacked pumpkin topiary by Jen at ‘Tater Tots and Jello’ looks amazing and adds a little feature to the side of a door with great effect. They are actually pre-lit craft pumpkins but look amazing all the same. They are kept together with a simple broom handle. A simple, yet brilliant idea.

This is just awesome, your very own smoke-producing pumpkin by ‘Infact’ on ‘HubPages’. This is actually quite easy to do and you will not need a smoke machine to achieve this. A few simple household items, dry ice and you are good to go. To see how to make this don’t forget to visit the ‘Infact’ page on ‘HubPages’ here.

Another idea from ‘Remove and Replace’ is this fantastic Man-eating pumpkin. Very simple but so, so effective and it will definitely have the neighbours talking! All you will need is an old jacket, some jeans and some dummy hands. Don’t worry if you haven’t got these lying around though, it isn’t a problem as you can just use gloves.

These last two designs are more great examples from ‘Remove and Replace‘. The ‘Spider Pumpkin’ is very simple and easy to make (no carving needed) whilst the ‘Baby Eating Pumpkin’ may take a little more patience to carve out and will look amazing once complete.
