Pineapple Jack-o-lantern

We are headed out to the pumpkin patch for round one of pumpkin picking this weekend. We do an early pumpkin carving and another one just a couple days before Halloween. This year I am incredibly intrigued by all the awesome carving I see going around on things other than pumpkins. I mean, if you think about it – why should pumpkins have all the fun!?! Let’s carve a pineapple instead… or a pepper, or an apple, and possibly my favorite – an orange. You can carve any fruit imaginable, just hallow it out and get slicing.

While I search for anything else I can carve, here are a few other awesome pumpkin ideas you might want to try:
