Carving a pumpkin isn't all about making it look nicer than your friends' pumpkins–it's about the experience and enjoyment you receive while doing so. Pumpkin carving is an activity that can allow people to bond, from making stencils to scooping out pumpkin guts!
A pumpkin has to be creative in order to get attention. A simple pumpkin can be spiced up with accessories like toothpicks or even paint. Most importantly, a pumpkin needs to express or represent some part of you.
For me, I've always been a fan of memes. A legendary meme out there is Pepe The Frog. Although the pumpkin is not spooky or scary, it is unique as it portrays a silly internet image.
If you're interested in carving a pumpkin, don't be afraid of what it will turn out took look like, it's all about the fun you had while carving it.
