Amazing pumpkin carvings are popping up everywhere as Halloween pumpkin carving quickly becomes one of the holiday’s fastest growing competitions. From spooky faces and scenes to the classic jack-o’-lantern, everyone seems to be trying the latest fads to create the most amazing pumpkin carving on the block. This month Martha Stewart challenges everyone to try a new style of pumpkin carving, using classic carving techniques to create a one-of-a-kind pumpkin carving on one of nature’s classic Halloween canvas.

Whether you’re carving pumpkins for a local festival or as a family tradition, Martha Stewart Living introduces us to a new take on carving pumpkins in this month’s article ‘Nature’s Canvas’.
This year, try an upgrade on the usual toothy jack-o’-lantern and carve something that looks like art. Strong images and repeating graphics make for a sophisticated and eye-catching pumpkin – and they don’t even need the help of a candle to shine!
