Photos of Amazing, Unique Pumpkin Carving Designs

Want to Try It Yourself?

I am no expert on pumpkin carving. The total number of pumpkins I have ever carved has reached... two. But, I am extremely impressed with people who carve pumpkins and make them look great. I received an email from a friend with pictures of elaborate carvings, and I was quite fascinated. I hope you will be, too, once you see some of these.

IMPORTANT NOTE: These designs are not mine, nor do I make any claim that they are. In this hub, I am not trying to make anyone any money (including myself) or market for any businesses. For legality's sake, I have included all sources for these images. As for the designs from Pumpkin Gutters, I have obtained the creator's permission to use his images.

Now that that's out of the way, enjoy these amazing pumpkin carving designs from professional carvers!

Pumpkin Gutter

The photos above and directly below this text capsule are from PumpkinGutter.Com. These are all carved by a man named Scott Cummins. According to his FAQs, he does them all himself with various tools. He does this for fun, not for profit, and he does not take custom orders or sell his pumpkins.

I only wish that I was that talented with produce. In case you don't recognize the images, here is a list of what is being portrayed.

Above:

  • Beetlejuice
  • Chewbacca (Star Wars)
  • Chimp (looks suspiciously like Planet of the Apes)
  • Davy Jones (Pirates of the Caribbean)
  • Gizmo (Gremlins)
  • Iron Man
  • Statue of Liberty
  • Cattle skull
  • Giant eyeball
  • Creepy dude
  • American Gothic
  • Yoda (Star Wars)
  • George W. Bush
  • Jaws

Below:

  • Hand, "Thy Kingdom is Divided"
  • Prenatal baby
  • Captain Spock (Star Trek)
  • Puss in Boots (Shrek)
  • Imperial Storm Trooper (Star Wars)
  • Tiger
  • Tiki totem pole face
  • Wolf

Extreme Pumpkins

The following carvings are from ExtremePumpkins.com. Like Pumpkin Gutter, the creator, Tom Nardone, does this for fun, not for profit. His site is called "extreme" because, as he says, he was sick of Halloween just being cute and fun for kids. He creates pumpkins that are scary, gross, or just plain out-there. I've picked the tamest of the bunch to display here.

Here is the list of the pumpkin carvings that are below:

  • Skull
  • Electrocuted pumpkin
  • Pumpkin with brains
  • Woman's outline
  • Conjoined twins

The pumpkins below portray the following:

These are great!!! Good job. It's hard to pick a favorite but I think I have to go with the cat. The detail is just crazy, I wonder how long it took him to do these pieces?

I love the Wookie and can do without the George Bush. They are amazing, and I have such respect for these carvers.

Just a quick note, the first carving is actually Beetlejuice from Tim Burton's Beetlejuice, not Golem.

Great pictures, though.

These are amazing creations! Especially the one of the former US President. Most of these are way to tough for me to attempt, I'd just be wasting my time.
