Halloween pumpkins are all the rage and this is the best place to look for inspiration for yours. We invite you to see these 15 ideas of decorated Halloween pumpkins that we have for you to create a trend in the world of terror.
death star pumpkin
The Star Wars universe is not only present on geek pride day. During Halloween night it is also common to see many children dressing up as characters from the saga. So why not welcome them in style with a cool Death Star decorated pumpkin?
This may be one of the most complicated to prepare. But, with a little patience and practice, it can be done.
First of all, empty the pumpkin, as we have explained to you to make Jack’s pumpkin. Remember, cut the top and a bit of the back, to be able to empty it better.
Now it’s time to work on the mold. You should download an image of what the death star looks like, since with the help of a knife and a spoon (or fork), there will be some areas where you will have to remove the skin, leaving a bit of meat.
The first thing we recommend to do is the small fissures of the death star. Right in the center, cut a piece of skin about 2 cm wide, to make it half of the star. And then, other pieces of 1 cm vertically, to make the vertical lines.
Next, just above the middle of the pumpkin, you must remove a little more skin and meat to make a small crater, but towards the interior. In said crater, with the help of an awl or a screwdriver, make a small hole.
Now, following the outline of the exterior of the death star, you will have to draw the rest of the lines, and remove the remaining pieces of skin from the pumpkin.
Place the candle inside, close the back, and get ready to see the incredible result of your work.
Is Jack’s pumpkin scary? That’s because you haven’t seen a skull-faced Halloween pumpkin yet. Those are really scary! Its preparation is quite simple. You only need a black marker, a medium orange and a white pumpkin, and finally a good knife.
After cutting off the top of the orange squash and hollowing it out, being very careful not to damage the exterior. He draws the face of the skull on the front. If you want to give it a scary look, you should cut out the outline of the mouth, so it looks like it’s really empty.
Then the white pumpkin will act as the brain. So with a knife you’re going to cut lines all over the surface, to give it the shape of a real human brain. Place in the orange pumpkin to see that it fits well.
If you see that the white squash sticks out a lot, then cut a piece so that it fits snugly. All you have to do is light the candle and enjoy the wonderful result.
Can it be scary to see a big pumpkin eating a small one? Who said no?! If you work it right, it could become the best Halloween pumpkin on the block. For this pumpkin you will need a large pumpkin, a small one and a marker. Besides the knife and spoon, of course.
For the large pumpkin you will have to work it a little. We recommend emptying it from behind, making a circular incision in the small upper part so that it is not very noticeable. But don’t empty it completely. In the closest area where the face will be, leave meat.
Now let’s go to the face, draw the eyes to your liking, but give the mouth a more macabre look by drawing it a bit misshapen. She thinks it has to look like she’s biting into a small pumpkin.
After emptying the eyes, it’s time to make the mouth. To do this, first remove what is the skin, following the line you have drawn. Next, you’re going to draw lines on the meat to mark the teeth. Cut with the knife, following the line, and being very careful not to break the teeth.
It’s time to make the little one, for which you are going to empty it and draw some sad eyes and a scared mouth. She cuts off the pieces of the skin and puts it right in the mouth of the big pumpkin.
When you put this pumpkin on your front door, everyone will want to take a picture with it.
Jack Skellington Pumpkin
The Jack Skellington character is actually based on the myth of Jack. In fact, doesn’t his face look like the one you usually draw on his pumpkin for Halloween night? So why not make a face just as funny as this Jack?
Making it is quite simple, and even children could prepare it. Cut a circle in the tail area and a little at the back. Empty with the help of an ice cream scoop or a soup spoon, being very careful not to take the skin in front of you.
Draw two huge circular eyes, the two nostrils, and Jack’s mouth, which is even teeth.
With the knife, cut the eye area, thus removing the two huge circles of skin. For the nose and mouth, you will only have to remove a little of the skin, for which use a smaller knife or scrape with something sharp, until the skin is removed.
All that remains is to put the candle inside the pumpkin and you will have it ready to put it in the garden. Very easy, right?
pumpkin throwing up
Some pumpkins might not feel right eating some kids on Halloween night… so it’s normal for the poor things to throw up! Would you like to learn how to do it?
As is obvious, the first thing will be to empty the pumpkin following the system that you prefer. But don’t throw away the pumpkin filling. Rather, put all the seeds and meat in the grinder and run it through the appliance for a couple of minutes.
Draw with a felt-tip pen some slanted eyes, so that it looks like the pumpkin is feeling bad, two circles for the nose and a huge mouth.
Now, very carefully cut with the knife everything you have drawn, throwing the remains in the trash. Be very careful with the nose area, because you could have some holes that are too big.
Now you just have to put the filling that you have crushed in the mouth area, so that it looks like vomit. You can’t put a candle on it, but doesn’t it look cute?
Darth Vader Pumpkin
You’re a huge Star Wars fan, and the Death Star pumpkin isn’t enough for you? There are more options that you can prepare for Halloween night, such as the Darth Vader pumpkin.
To do it, what you have to draw on the pumpkin (after having emptied it) are some lines that simulate the Jedi’s helmet on the dark side, and then inside others to outline the face. Cut out those areas with a knife.
In this way, when you put a candle inside and it gets dark, the area of the helmet will appear to be black, while the rest of the pumpkin will be more illuminated.
If you want to give it a darker and more sinister touch, paint the inside of the lines, that is, the skin area, with a black marker. We guarantee that the final result will not disappoint you.
Oh no! Ghosts have started coming to your house! But thanks to this ghostbusters pumpkin, no one will dare try to catch you on Halloween!
It is a somewhat difficult design to make, since you have to be very careful with the cut so as not to damage the pumpkin, but it is Halloween and the effort is worth it. With a little practice it can be done. The first thing is to empty it completely. Follow the procedure that you like the most to achieve it.
Now you have to draw on the front part the shape of the ghostbusters logo. For the cut, you are going to follow two steps: what is the image of the ghost, you only have to cut it until you reach a little bit of the meat of the pumpkin, removing only the skin. Clearly, the eye and mouth area you will have to remove the skin.
On the contrary, in what is the prohibition sign you will remove all the meat, reaching the inside of the pumpkin.
When you put it on on the porch of your house, no one who is disguised as a ghost is going to dare to approach it.
This may be the simplest pumpkin, and the least scary it will be. However, it is so cute that you will want to do it.
To make it, apart from a medium pumpkin, you will also need a zucchini, two corks in the shape of a circle, two toothpicks and some green plasticine. Apart from the marker and the knife.
We will start by making the shell of the snail. For this, this time we recommend removing the bottom of the pumpkin, to empty it from below. Once achieved, draw a spiral at the top to remove that part of the skin from the pumpkin.
Place the pumpkin on the ground. Cut the zucchini in the lower area, so that it can rest well, and put it right next to the pumpkin shell.
Drill the two cork balls to make the eyes and, with the help of some long sticks, place them in the zucchini. Finally, glue some plasticine to what would be the snail’s nose… oh, and don’t forget to draw a smile on it!
All that remains is to put a candle inside the shell and you will see how this precious little friend animates the atmosphere in the street.
This is quite an original option on how to decorate a pumpkin for Halloween. You can do a very elaborate job or something simpler, it all depends on the desire you have to work with the pumpkin.
To make this type of pumpkin, first of all you will have to empty the pumpkin (you already know that you can use the system that you like best to achieve it).
Then, in the part where the spider will be, draw the creature. With the help of a knife, cut everything around the spider. If you are a very handy person, you can cut pieces to make it look like the spider is in a web.
After putting the candle inside, all you have to do is use a black pipe cleaner to make the eight legs. And list!
This type of pumpkin can also be used to make a decorated Spider-man pumpkin, for example. Only, instead of leaving empty holes, he simply carves the symbol into the pumpkin so it lights up nicely at night.
pumpkin with animals
In this case, instead of making the typical pumpkin with a face, what is done is to use a pumpkin with plastic animals. A type of pumpkin perfect for decorating a children’s party.
How is it done? Very simple: you only need a large pumpkin, a knife, a spoon and the plastic animals. You must make holes in the surface of the pumpkin, in which you will put the plastic animals.
If they are mice or insects, you do not need to empty the interior. But if your idea is to make it with some kind of reptile, in that case we do recommend emptying it completely so that the animal’s body can fit well through the hole.
To illuminate on the night of witches nothing comes better than a good lamp. But, what if those lamps that you can put in your home were made with pumpkins?
This may be the easiest Halloween pumpkin to make. After cutting off the top and hollowing out the inside of the pumpkin, use a hole punch or drill to poke holes in the surface.
Try to make the holes in some striking shape, like a flower or the whole surface full of holes, but in different colors. Then, all that remains is to put the candle inside and illuminate the room.
What if instead of hollowing out pumpkins you just decorated them a bit? You could make satirical images of family members using whatever you have around the house.
For example, let’s say you want to make a satirical pumpkin of your grandmother. Well, you just have to use a little foam or cotton to make the hair, using clouds to make the curls. You can make the eyes out of paper and the lips can be candy lips.
You can buy the glasses at any cheap store in the area, with a string that falls down to give it a more realistic look. What is your father? Well, the same thing: a bit of colored cotton to make the hair, trinkets to give it an original touch…
In recent years, satirical pumpkins have gained a lot of power among Halloween decorations, as they are a great family activity to have fun with before Halloween. You can even have a contest to see who does the best.
Pumpkin with a witch’s hat
If Halloween is also known as the night of the witches, isn’t it obvious that there must be a witch present among the pumpkins? Making them is very easy!
You will need a pumpkin that has a very large stem, to use it as a nose. Then, on top of the stem, draw the eyes and scrape until you almost reach the skin. A circle that surrounds an area of skin for the eyes.
To make the mouth, you have several options. Either you scrape a little and get to the meat, making the skin teeth and the bottom of the mouth is the meat of the pumpkin, or you hollow it out inside and from the inside you use a knife to shape the teeth. .
You already have the shape of the face. But what are you missing? Of course, the decorations! Well, something as easy as putting on a wig and a witch’s hat. Ready to scare the neighborhood!
At a party, not everything has to be terrifying pumpkins. There may also be some pumpkin that brings a bit of “good vibes” to the atmosphere of the house.
Our advice would be a vase pumpkin. To make it, after cutting the upper part, empty it inside with the help of an ice cream scoop or soup tureen. Then, you draw whatever face you want on the pumpkin.
Inside, place a cork and hook the stems of the flowers. When you’re done, your pumpkin will look terribly cute.
pumpkin for sweets
This is an idea very similar to the previous one, with the only difference that it will serve to put sweets. Although it is not strictly necessary, after hollowing out the pumpkin, and only if you want, you can draw a face on the pumpkin.
With the help of an ice pick, a drill with a very fine bit, or whatever you have on hand, make holes in the surface of the pumpkin. In these holes you can put the lollipops, candies or whatever you want from Halloween sweets hooked, so that people can take them during the party.
