Almost every October for the last five years, my pumpkin diorama posts have always been perennial favorites. As you can see above, these consists of dioramas inside pumpkins. Though I often put them under Halloween decorations, they’re not exclusively so. After all, I’ve put up some pumpkin dioramas relating to Dia de los Muertos and Thanksgiving. Nonetheless, since most of these relate to Halloween, I usually put them there. Not to mention, pumpkin dioramas are often difficult to find. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I bring you another assortment of pumpkin dioramas for this Halloween season.

The Spooky World of Halloween Pumpkin Dioramas (Fourth Edition)

untitled.png

One of my more popular Halloween posts revolves around pumpkin dioramas. In fact, every year when Halloween comes around, I usually get high stats with these decorations. These usually consist of a pumpkin with a haunted scene inside. Though the pumpkin in question usually comes from a craft store. Since real pumpkins have a lot of craft inside and usually decay in November. Yet, many of these scenes usually consist of haunted houses and grave yards. However, some can be quite creative, too. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of Halloween pumpkin dioramas.

  1. Please, come into this pumpkin house.

Hey, skeletons and zombies like to have their picnics. Though how’d they get a large grill in a cemetery, I’m not sure.

39. Seems like the Grim Reaper is on the prowl.

Well, if you’re in the haunted hollow, you’ll run into him at some point. And yes, he rides a white horse.

40. These skeletons are always willing to perform at Dia de los Muertos.

Okay, so it’s not a Mexican Halloween style pumpkin. But it’s a pumpkin diorama nonetheless that can be used for Halloween.

41. You will always have a good time at the carnival fun fair.

Includes a skeleton and a scary clown. Probably want to avoid the scary clown.

42. Here we have some Mexican skeletons playing in the cemetery.

Another diorama for Dia de los Muertos. Yet, you have to love the black and white flowers on it.

43. How about an undead serenade?

Yes, they seem to have a few Day of the Dead dioramas on Etsy. And this one is in a graveyard with a fence.

44. A fairy sleeps in a small pumpkin among flowers.

Another fairy pumpkin diorama. This is more suited for spring which isn’t a season for pumpkins.

45. In this diorama, the graves surround a mausoleum.

Yes, a lot of these are in grave yards. Decorated with a ribbon and jewel on the outside.

46. Might not want to cross this Ent in the cemetery at night.

This one is made of ceramic. Contains a clever spooky sign and moss.

47. All hail the ghoulish Pharaoh of Egypt.

Wonder if Ancient Egypt imagined the afterlife like this. Still, you have to like the skeletons in Egyptian garb.

48. On Dia de los Muertos, you can’t do better than these pumpkin dioramas.

This one has skeletons serenading along with flowers and other decorations. The shells are decorated with glitter.

49. May these skeletons be together till death.

Oh, I forgot. They’re dead. But you have to love the lighting and the glitter on this one.

50. Fall is always a time of year for deer in the forest.

Inside we have a doe and her fawn. Outside we have a buck. The bottom is covered in fake moss.

The Spooky World of Halloween Pumpkin Dioramas (Second Edition)

pumpkin-diorama-feature

Last year, I did a post on Halloween pumpkin dioramas that has caused as much of a sensation on my blog and continues to do so. So I decided to do another post despite having a hard time finding unique pumpkin dioramas like these posted above. And I used all of them in last year’s post. When I discussed the idea of pumpkin dioramas with my mother, she seemed to imagine the pumpkin being part of the display. So she was surprised when she saw the dioramas in the pumpkin whether they come from a pumpkin patch or a craft store. And many of them do have a lot of scary Halloween stuff. But once in a while you might find pumpkin dioramas like these which revolve around polar regions, fairy gardens, and space.  Some pumpkin dioramas revolve around Thanksgiving but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of these Halloween pumpkin creations.

  1. How about a some campfire music with old friends?
Sure they may not want to get out of their graves at the moment. But the music can go straight to their bones or wake the dead.

2. Things have been a little dead lately in the big house.

And here they are gambling behind bars. Seem to have no bones about it.

3. Seems like this graveyard has seen better days.

Guess somebody hasn't tended this cemetery in years. As I can tell by the weeds.

4. Hope you don’t have to stay in this haunted house.

The house lights up from the inside if you get my drift. Seems like a skeleton answers the door.

5. Just because the house is small doesn’t mean it’s not haunted.

Well, this house is a paper cut out. Yet, I do love how they used moss and trees for the scary decor.

6. Sometimes these old houses could take their secrets to the grave.

Yes, I know it's not painted black for a night scene on the inside. Yet, it nevertheless seems all the more eerie.

7. Don’t mind these skeletons hanging out on the graveyard shift.

"So I said to her, 'Look, we're not getting any younger. At least I you still have your skin while I'm practically decomposing.'"

“So I said to her, ‘Look, we’re not getting any younger. At least I you still have your skin while I’m practically decomposing.'”

8. Hope your pumpkin graveyard includes a scary tree.

And I don't mean one of those Ents from Lord of the Rings. Unless you want to do a Lord of the Rings pumpkin diorama, which this is not.

9. Seems like we have a light from the ground here.

It's also part miniature garden as well with a carved top. Still, like the light.

10. Man, those skeletons sure know how to party.

But I often hear that they're not a lively bunch. Though they really seem to have a dead good time.

11. When you see a large skull at night, you’ll be in for a fright.

Now this one is quite menacing. Really like how the one skeleton rises out of the ground and the white trees. That kid will surely need therapy.

12. Guess you can find lots of bats about this one.

This one seems to take a view from the sky with paper bats and branches inside. Amazing.

13. Open the door to this pumpkin and you’ll find a haunted house inside.

You'll also find some pumpkins stacked like a snowman as well as bats on a lite tree. But that's beside the point.

14. Sometimes people would want their pumpkins to contain the sights of nature.

However, they couldn't include a scene of deer mating, fighting, getting shot but hunters, or being hit by cars as would you normally see during the fall. So they decided to go with a deer family scene instead.

15. This little pumpkin contains a real graveyard scene.

Well, it doesn't use much. But you might not want to know who's buried here. Or who's decomposing.

16. Enter this graveyard if you dare.

Love how they painted the clouds in this one. Also like the large gate. Really eerie.

"How about we cook ribs on the grill tonight?" "Whose yours or mine? Cause I don't have any meat on 'em."

18. Here we come to Cinderella being let out from her pumpkin coach.

Well, that's one way to put a pumpkin to good use. Not scary for Halloween, creative enough.

19. May your dreams come true with this Disney pumpkin diorama.

Once again, this also features Cinderella and her castle. Why was I not surprised?

20. Even foxes should know not to be alone in a graveyard at night.

Well, I think the fox touch is a bit clever since wildlife frequent cemeteries all the time. Hope it can get through the night.

21. How about a road of black trees into the sunset?

I guess the trees might be made from paper. But I love how they create an arch over the road so close together.

22. This skeleton is by himself with his bones.

Yes. he's on a bench in his bones on a night like this. Hope he didn't die waiting for anyone or anything.

23. This haunted house has really gone to the ghosts.

Well, you have bats around here, too but they seem more part of the scenery. But they're the only living creature you'll find here.

24. Fans of the Wizard of Oz would enjoy this pumpkin diorama of Emerald City.

Of course, I think the flying monkey scenes would've been more appropriate. Considering this is Halloween we're talking about.

25. Using cotton is great for cobwebs and fog.

Well, this seems like a messy craft project made by a school child. Then again, it's kind of supposed to be.

26. For a fighting mummy scene, an Egyptian scene is necessary.

And it seems these mummies are going at it with each other. Must be in a museum.

27. Seems like these skeletons are having a graveyard smash in the Old West.

Well, it's kind of hard to make out what's going on here. But I'm sure the figures are kind of undead.

28. Sometimes a graveyard might need to blend with its surroundings.

After all, having it a plain orange pumpkin doesn't make it seem any more dead. Also, got to make room for those trees.

29. This skeleton really knows how to make an entrance.

Yes, they really seem to dig a stylish red motorcycle. Then again, it's not like the moped could kill them since they're dead already.

30. Ahoy, dead pirates on the high seas.

Seems like they came across some treasure, too. Too bad they may not be able to enjoy it.

31. It always seems a little dead at 1313.

Doesn't seem like a lively place. Unless you're a bat. Like the house and trees.

32. Need room for broom parking?

Well, outside broom parking anyway. Inside broom parking space is a closet. Like the spiderweb.

33. This place seems to have become a real ghost town.

Think of it as an Old West town but with skeletons. Why Tim Burton doesn't make a western movie like this I have no idea.

34. It’s always eerie to see bats flying at the full moon.

Well, bats are kind of creepy if you ask me. Yet, wonder if there's a pumpkin diorama with a Batman sign.

35. Seems like this pumpkin is under construction.

This one uses Playmobil figures. Must've been made for a kid so it would be less scary.

36. Behold the raven overlooking the unburied graves.

Odd, to have the skeletons all black like they're decomposing. Nice to have a mausoleum, which you don't see in a lot of grave yard scenes.

37. Now this makes a great cemetery entrance.

I'm sure most cemeteries don't have skeleton entry archways. So enter if you dare.

Both of them even have bats for added Halloween emphasis. Also like the gnomes.

39. You’ll never know what you’ll find on Halloween night.

These seem to have a more vintage look to them. Two have trick or treaters. One has a witch.

40. May you step up to know your fortune.

Seems like that's an Evil Queen from Snow White in a yellow dress for this purpose. Love the border though.

41. Seems like we have plants spilling out this pumpkin.

Well, I said some of these are mini gardens. Not sure if it will be good after October though.

42. Not sure if I could hear the future from this fortune teller.

Like the spider web outfit on the skeleton. Very fitting for a haunted fortune teller.

43. Something must’ve awoken the dead during the night.

Then again, they could be early risers. Of course, it's probably too late for me to say that.

44. Those who enjoy Harry Potter will enjoy these pumpkin dioramas.

One depicts Buckbeak at Hagrid's Hut from the Prisoner of Azkaban. The other has Harry on his broom during a Quidditch match.

45. There’s nothing more adorable than a couple of raccoons.

Yes, these are cute inside your pumpkin. But they can be a terror in your trash bin.

46. Better rest in peace with this spooky town.

Yes, I know you see a lot of graveyard pumpkin dioramas. But it's Halloween for God's sake. So graveyard scenes are a thing.

47. Well, hope these ghosts can haunt to it.

This doesn't seem that hard to do. And will surely not scare people. Like the ghosts.

48. Nothing makes a better pumpkin diorama like a tiger and a squirrel.

And the squirrel doesn't seem to scale which makes it ideal prey for the tiger. Because, that's nature.

49. Perhaps you may say he’s dead but not completely buried.

Now that looks pretty creepy, especially with the foliage. Love the crow on top. Or is that a raven?

50. This spidery pumpkin has no bones about it.

Well, it has plenty of bones about it inside. But that's just an expression. Still, has spiders for extra creepiness.

The Spooky World of Halloween Pumpkin Dioramas

home-family-cristina-crafts-diy-pumpkin-die-oramas

Most of you might know that Halloween is the time of year when people carve pumpkins into jack o’ lanterns and other carvings. However, for those who might be bored with the idea of carving pumpkins, you might want to consider an alternative. And while doing my post on Halloween crafts, I found just the thing: pumpkin dioramas. This just entails cutting a pumpkin from the side, taking any stuff out, and decorating the inside however you please. Or you can just use a foam one wherever they sell them. And while it’s not nearly as popular as the Easter peep dioramas, you still have some of these on Pinterest. You can also see quite a few tutorials on the subject as well if you’re interested. Now many pumpkin dioramas consist of Halloween scenes like graveyards, haunted houses, pumpkin patches, and the like. And like jack o’lanterns, they’re usually lit from the inside, too. But if you’re a repressed art major or someone looking for a different kind of crafting, then be my guest. So without further adieu, here are some spooky pumpkin dioramas.

  1. Heard that a giant pumpkin can offer a comfy living accommodation for any witch.
Odd, I'd usually expect a haggard witch like her to cook some potion. But this one seems to enjoy knitting for some reason. Then again, it might just be a hobby.

2. Of course, sometimes jail time can really take the life out of you.

Looks like the guy holding the bars isn't the only person who literally died in there. Just look at the others inside. He seems to have very good company.

3. So I guess this is the broom parking zone.

And it seems the witches got there almost twenty minutes before midnight. Of course, I'm not sure if the zombies are happy in this neck of the cemetery.

4. Looks like the owl has really made itself at home in this pumpkin.

Now this is quite rustic for a pumpkin diorama. But still, really like the owl in its hole. Not very scary but very fitting for fall.

5. Of course, at night, the cemetery can be a hopping place.

Yeah, nothing in the cemetery compares to the sight of skeletons and mummies dancing. Hey, wait a minute, aren't mummies supposed to be in Egypt? What the hell is it doing here?

6. At some old houses, it can get quite scary at night, especially if they’re haunted.

This is especially true if the house in question has their very own family cemetery. Like the crow, though.

7. Not sure if I ever want to go into this witch’s pumpkin patch at night.

Now I like how the pumpkins seem to glow in the dark. Still, that tree seems to have a lot of large fruit.

8. The cemetery can be a rather bleak place on autumn nights.

Now this one uses twigs for bare trees as well as moss for the graveyard ground. Not sure if the leaves are real.

9. Seems like a lot of people got hanged in this area.

Now this is quite neat. Still, I'm not sure if there would be an area with skeletons on a noose like that. I'm sure people would see that.

10. Seems like the earth isn’t safe with these pumpkin aliens.

Now this is clever. This used a pumpkin as a flying saucer or UFO and small green pumpkins as aliens.

11. Looks like the zombies are out messing around this time of night.

Of course, who says that the dead aren't a very lively bunch? Still, like how this person used a light bulb for the moon.

12. Now this graveyard seems like a ghostly hangout.

Not sure what's under the ghosts (probably wires or foam). But I do like the one on top.

13. Guess the graveyard shift isn’t as dull as it’s cracked up to be.

Seems like the skeletons are having fun and are making no bones about it. And there's even one with a top hat and cane.

14. Of course, there’s nothing like spending Halloween in the North Pole.

Hey, I didn't say that pumpkin dioramas had to be about Halloween stuff. Still, not sure if the people can fit into the igloo.

15. Nighttime is said to be when you can hear the wolf howling at the moon.

I'm not sure if wolves really howl at the moon. I mean howling could just as easily be a form of long distance communication for them.

16. Seems like this graveyard is fenced in and gives no bones about it.

Let's hope they didn't get the bones from the graves. Because that would be bad. Really bad.

Let’s hope they didn’t get the bones from the graves. Because that would be bad. Really bad. Still, like the lamp post.

17. A pumpkin and a bouquet of black roses are all that a skeleton needs for a date.

Yes, he may be all bones by now. But he seems smiling and ready for action.

Yes, he may be all bones by now. But he seems smiling and ready for action.

18. It’s said to be customary for some people to tell ghost stories at a Halloween bonfire.

Guess the kid dressed is Batman seems quite frightened. Then again, the lighting makes the atmosphere quite eerie.

19. Using purple light for your diorama can certainly make a graveyard scene look grim.

Now that pipe cleaner tree looks straight out of some Dr. Seuss story. And that grim looks certainly menacing.

20. It’s fairly apparent the fairies love to frolic in spring gardens.

Yes, it's a fairy scene in a pumpkin. I know that pumpkins are fall plants while flowers are spring. Yes, it's kind of confusing.

21. Remember, it always pays to show up around dusk for the graveyard shift.

Now this kind of looks like dusk since the inside is painted white. But the skeleton looks just as menacing from the shadows.

22. This little princess is all dressed up for her Halloween party.

And it seems like she's headed towards the snack table. Still, the decorations in the room are certainly vintage.

23. Of course, nothing captures the woodland spirit than a scene with deer.

Just so you know that you can't shoot deer on Halloween. Because deer hunting season begins after Thanksgiving. Why the makers of Out of the Furnace didn't know this, I'm not sure.

24. Sometimes spending time outside the casket can look quite frightening to living human onlookers.

From the view in this picture, this scene looks quite menacing, especially with the skeleton in the coffin and the other surrounding him. Still, you have to love the bow on this.

25. There are sometimes spending Halloween nights in graveyards can be a ghoulish experience.

Now unlike many of the pumpkin dioramas here, this one is carved in a rather unusual way to give it a spooky feel. Still, not sure how that can be pulled off.

26. Seems like this mummy is definitely no fan of the great white archaeologist.

Finally, a pumpkin diorama with an appropriate mummy scene. However, I'm not sure if Egypt has that many palm trees near the Valley of Kings.

27. Guess the undead Wild West was quite lively in its day.

Not sure if the moss is appropriate but it sure brings a creepy vibe. Still, love the western clad skeletons in this.

28. Of course, it always pays to spend time studying in the library.

Man, kind of disappointed that this doesn't look decrepit. Just looks like somebody studying in the library, possibly in the evening hours.

29. When doing a pumpkin graveyard scene, make sure to make it as creepy as possible.

Now this looks quite messy with all the lights mangled for a pink glow sky and the ground that appears covered in last year's Christmas decorations. Still, quite appropriate for Halloween.

30. Fall is the time when wolves howl at the full moon at night.

Hey, wolves don't howl just for the sake of it. They howl to make other packs know about their family presence. There's nothing creepy about it.

31. Sometimes you can create a whole wilderness in just one little pumpkin.

Now I wonder how someone pulled this off. Then again, the pumpkin is probably bigger than it appears in this photo.

32. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Foresaken Cemetery.

Now this is another one of these intricately cut pumpkins. Still, I do like the lighting in this. Very eerie if you get my drift.

33. Seems like these astronauts have encountered some alien lifeform near Earth.

Now this one is quite creative. Still, not sure why the fuzzy guy in this isn't wearing a space suit. I mean space exists in a vacuum and if you have no suit on, you're dead.

34. Looks like the full moon is over the haunted house tonight.

Now the props used in this seem to consist of paper cutouts. And there's only a little bit of light to bring in some eerie atmosphere in this one.

35. Seems like this skeleton wants his jack o’lantern all to himself.

Now this one seems quite simple to make and doesn't seem to require a lot of materials. Of course, the trees are made from pipe cleaners and don't seem very big.

36. Looks like this skeleton wants to rise and shine out from his coffin.

Now this also looks pretty doable. Still, not sure if the skeleton is male or female. Then again, skeletons tend to be made with narrow pelvises anyway, which usually indicate male.

37. Leave a pumpkin hollowed out too long and it will become a place for a spider to spin its web.

Now this doesn't seem to take much work at all. Then again, there's a choice between regular spiderweb or cobweb.

Now this doesn’t seem to take much work at all. Then again, there’s a choice between regular spiderweb or cobweb.

38. Of course, nothing commemorates Halloween more than a pumpkin diorama of Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin.

Seriously, Linus should just wait for the Great Pumpkin after trick or treating. But you know, he never seems to give up hope that the Great Pumpkin would show up someday. Yeah, it's ridiculous.

39. I guess this house is really haunted with ghosts. Wouldn’t you agree?

Once again, this is mostly paper decorations. However, you wouldn't want to stay in a house like that.

40. This one is known as, “Death’s Coffee Break.”

Because even though Death has a rather busy schedule, he still needs to make time for a cup of joe. Yeah, he tends to work very odd and long hours.

Because even though Death has a rather busy schedule, he still needs to make time for a cup of joe. Yeah, he tends to work very odd and long hours 7 days a week.

41. “Hello, and welcome to this pumpkin home.”

Looks a bit small for a doll like that. And there doesn't seem to be a lot of space. Still, she might have plenty of food.

42. There’s nothing more teeth clenching than seeing a pirate having to battle snakes for his treasure on a deserted island.

Contrary to popular belief, pirates didn't bury their treasure since most of them didn't expect to live long. Nor did they battle giant monster snakes. Still, this looks pretty cool.

43. Remember that there’s no party like a Halloween party.

Now this one looks pretty cramped. And all you see is a table and decorations. Wonder how big the pumpkin is.

44. I’m sure a cozy home like this should be plenty for 3 witches.

Seems like they're making potions in there. Hope one of them doesn't cause a fire or anything worse.

45. A pumpkin like this shows a world during the time of the dinosaurs.

Actually this might be the Cretaceous  period as far as I can see. And they were about the last group of dinosaurs before they became extinct 65 million years ago.

46. Revisit the magical world of Harry Potter with these pumpkin dioramas.

Seems like they got Hagrid's hut from book 3 since Buckbeak appears all chained up. And I see they have Harry playing Quidditch, too.

47. For any stranded travelers on Halloween, beware of having your car break down near houses like these.

Now this paper haunted house is actually quite well designed. Still, might need more detail and appear more decrepit looking.

48. Of course, it’s possible that a raven will linger in the cemeteries at night.

Now that's a clever idea. Not sure about the size of the bird in proportion to the grave stones. But, hey, it works.

49. When green light comes into play, anything can be made as eerie as you want it.

Of course, seeing a green light like this is never a good sign. Still, at least that light is at a graveyard and not at a nuclear facility.

50. It has become apparent to me that the ferocious 3 headed dog wants to play fetch with a stick.

Of course, I'm not sure what's in the background in this one. Still, I don't think Fluffy is the kind of dog you want to play fetch with. Dogs like that can get quite nasty.

The Wonderful World of Halloween Pumpkin Carving

Jack-o-lantern

Carving pumpkins has always been a Halloween traditions since the legend of the Jack-o’-lantern. People tend to open a pumpkin, empty out all the seeds and entrails, carve a face, and put a light in it to for the outside. Of course, there are people who engage themselves in this Halloween tradition and some who don’t. Still, many people do carve some amazing pumpkins for this Halloween season. I can go on with how amazing some of these carvings are but you probably don’t want to hear that. Instead I’ll do a post on pumpkin carvings that are either not family friendly and/or doomed to offend your neighbors or drive trick or treaters away. Nevertheless, Halloween is one of those holidays where you could get away with being tacky or creepy so this was a hard post and some images may be not safe for work. Viewer discretion is advised. So without further adieu and your viewing pleasure, here’s an assortment of Halloween pumpkins you don’t want to see on your block.

1. Guess, pumpkins need a way to cope when nature calls.

I'm sure a display saying "2 Pumpkins, 1 Cup" won't go well with guests. Also, it's pretty disgusting on what's implied to be in the cup.

I’m sure a display saying “2 Pumpkins, 1 Cup” won’t go well with guests. Also, it’s pretty disgusting on what’s implied to be in the cup. This just takes bathroom humor a little too far.

2. Now this jack-o’-lantern seems to be too jackshit crazy over burning his own kind.

Okay, that's a little too disturbing and very unsafe. I mean this pumpkin is just vile taking over the grill burning his smaller counterparts. Sheesh.

3. Now I’m sure the kiddies will appreciate this reenactment of the Death Star blowing up Alderaan.

Now this isn't a safe pumpkin and a rather traumatizing one to Star Wars fans. Hope this isn't where kids could walk through.

4. Pumpkin in a plastic bag, what can go wrong here?

Is it just me or does it just seem like a depiction of a jack-o'-lantern drowning or suffocating? Either way it's pretty bad since people have been killed through plastic bags.

5. Looks like someone is taking pleasure in his meal.

Of course, having his orange friend feasting on his innards won't go so well for the white pumpkin. Still, this is just sick and very disturbingly cannibalistic.

6. Behold, the jack-o’-centipede.

For those who've seen the terrible Human Centipede movies, I'm sure you'd probably not want your kids to visit a house with a pumpkin carving designed to imitate this. Seriously, it's disturbing.

7. Of course, some pumpkins still need to do the time.

But having them spend prison in a pumpkin shell, well, I can't even think about it. Of course, this is one of the least inappropriate of the bunch.

8. I’m sure Jack must’ve done something terribly wrong to get the chair.

Seriously, the death penalty isn't really a subject you should mock, especially since the electric chair is still used for execution in a few states as well as seen as cruel and unusual punishment.

9. Now here’s a good idea on what to do when you have an old aquarium you haven’t used since your pet turtle died.

However, just don't create the impression of your carved pumpkins drowning. I mean drowning isn't something people should joke about, even on Halloween. This is especially true for those who live near the coast or work at a pool.

10. Behold, a Halloween pumpkin tribute to the Alien movies.

Actually, I'm 24 years old and this display just makes me puke. Still, this is just far too graphic for any Halloween display.

Actually, I’m 24 years old and this display just makes me puke. Still, this is just far too graphic for any Halloween display. Guaranteed to traumatize the kiddies for sure.

11. Congratulations, it’s quintuplets. and a bunch of red pumpkins.

Let's just say, displays that show the delivery room and nature's bounty in a cornucopia don't go together.

Let’s just say, displays that show the delivery room and nature’s bounty in a cornucopia don’t go together. Nice to make those gourds look like boobs though.

12. I didn’t say “Let’s play doctor.” I said, “Let’s play Medieval doctor.”

Now this is just graphic and sick. I understand gory Halloween displays, but this just frightens trick or treaters.

Now this is just graphic and sick. I understand gory Halloween displays, but this just frightens trick or treaters. Besides, that pumpkin with a saw needs to be put to jail.

13. Oh, no, it’s the claw.

This display makes me more terrified of vending machines than I ever had since watching Toy Story. Also, I don't think the big pumpkin's intentions are good.

14. Hmmm…pumpkin brain surgery, now I’ve seen everything.

Sure it may look clever but that brain gourd seems too close to the real thing. Also, it might scare the kids.

15. Use your pumpkin to store your beer for this year’s Oktoberfest by attaching a tap on it.

Warning: must try to store it in a safe place when Halloween comes around. Also, don't attempt this if your friends suspect you of alcoholism.

16. Oh, look a man and a oh, my God!

What the fuck? Seriously, bestiality is animal abuse! Why does anyone think this is funny? Seriously, such display basically offends everyone and won't attract trick or treaters.

What the fuck? Seriously, bestiality is animal abuse! Why does anyone think this is funny? Seriously, such display basically offends everyone and won’t attract trick or treaters. WTF is right. Not cool.

17. Oh, look a princess pumpkin carving. Wait a minute, this is a reenactment of Carrie!

Now perhaps we shouldn't carve pumpkins to pay tribute to Stephen King novels. Still, at least it's not a tribute to the Shawshank Redemption or the Green Mile.

18, Looks like this pumpkin seems to take advice from the Tim Taylor School of Technology.

I don't think making a pumpkin depicting a garage mishap may not be very funny as it is on Home Improvement. Sad to say. Still, when you want to do a hammer head pumpkin, stick wit the shark.

19. Now this pumpkin macdaddy sure is stylin’ with his foil grill and sunglasses.

Now this is just in really poor taste. Seriously, pimps are never good idea for Halloween costumes or pumpkins, especially if you have black people in your neighborhood.

20. Now this will be a perfect pumpkin for my sex dungeon.

Now this is just very inappropriate to children and perhaps offensive to those in the BDSM community. Then again, children may not know anything about BDSM as far as I know.

21. Oh, no, the jack-o’-lantern just blew his brains out!

Now this is just simply inappropriate and certain to offend neighbors. Using a gun in a Halloween display is never okay. Seriously, gun violence is nothing to joke about at all.

Now this is just simply inappropriate and certain to offend neighbors. Using a gun in a Halloween display is never okay. Seriously, gun violence is nothing to joke about at all, especially suicide.

22. Looks like this pumpkin baby needs a diaper change.

I'm sure all parents have memories of this. Still, this is downright sick if you know what I mean. Besides, there are just some subjects that shouldn't be used in decoration.

23. Now here’s a flasher pumpkin with a gourd genitalia.

Now this is a very inappropriate pumpkin carving, indeed. Seriously flashing is considered indecent exposure and sometimes street harassment that will get you arrested. Seriously, why?

24. Okay, keep your hands off your pumpkin butt.

Now this is just a really inappropriate design to display in your front yard. Not to mention, your neighbors might think it contains sexual connotations or feel very insulted.

25. Now there’s nothing like a hanging in a cemetery scene.

Wait a minute, we should remember, people in the South used to lynch black people by hanging them on a tree during segregation. Also, people kill themselves this way. This explains why hangings are never a good idea in a Halloween decoration.

26. Now here’s a pumpkin design taken straight from a truck’s sleazy mudflaps.

A naked mudflap lady on your decoration basically says, "Hi, I'm a single man and I'm a male chauvinist pig." I know it may not apply to all men who have a thing for the mudflaps with the naked ladies, but it's pretty much the stereotype.

27. Now here’s a pumpkin of how babies are made.

Now I've seen a lot of these pumpkin carvings with sex imagery. This one is about as tame as you can get. Still, I'm sure such pumpkin imagery is sure to offend parents.

28. Of course, there will certainly be a full moon tonight.

I've seen a lot of pumpkins featuring naked backsides as well. The lady ones usually pertain to a witch. This one was about the least offensive but still inappropriate.

29. Ladies and gentlemen, the crack-ho’-lantern.

Now this is just plain offensive and racist even if the hair isn't exactly black. Yet, we know how crack hos tend to be stereotyped.  Seriously, why?

Now this is just in poor taste. This is a more appropriate Halloween display for sex ed or a doctor's office than anything else.

31. Nothing indicates a stoner residence like a carved pumpkin of a marijuana leaf.

Now I'm sure police wouldn't want to search your house if they saw that pumpkin carving would they? Of course, that only goes for people who live outside of Colorado and Washington.

Now I’m sure police wouldn’t want to search your house if they saw that pumpkin carving would they? Of course, that only goes for people who live outside of Colorado and the state of Washington. Still, Willie Nelson would be proud.

32. Great, now these pumpkins are devouring people!

Now this is pretty sick if you really think about it. Still, this pumpkin display is guaranteed to give young trick or treaters nightmares.

33. Well, maybe the pumpkin ate your baby.

Now having a carved pumpkin gnaw at some human leg is one thing. Yet, one devouring a little kid, now that's just too disturbing to put in one's yard.

34. Behold, the Hannibal-Lect-o’-lantern.

Now I'm sure using Silence of the Lambs isn't an appropriate subject for pumpkin carvings. This is especially true when its a carving of a guy who said, "I ate his liver with a fine chianti and some fava beans." Then again, Buffalo Bill would be a worse choice.

35. The Jack-o’-Lantern goes to the doctors.

Of course, this decoration should only be appropriate for medical offices that don't take any children. Also, I'm not sure if the gown is put on the right way.

36. Use your pumpkin to store your nice cold beer for football season.

Now I'm sure this isn't the kind of pumpkin carving suited for families. Might want to store this away from trick or treaters.

37. Oh, no, some pumpkin is wearing a thong!

Now this is just not an appropriate decoration that will offend parents traveling with their kids during trick or treating. Seriously, why?

38. Yikes! someone has pulled a grenade!

Now I'm sure a pumpkin grenade isn't dangerous but it may trigger some painful memories among the war veterans in your life. Also, I'm sure that pumpkin on the left is scared shitless.

39. Pedobear says there’s free candy.

Now I know that Pedobear is actually used to mock pedophiles as well as child sexualization like kiddie pageants and not as a mascot for pedophilia. However, this doesn't stop people from being offended by him. Also, it might repel more trick or treaters than attract especially if they're with their parents.

Now I know that Pedobear is actually used to mock pedophiles and not as a mascot for pedophilia. Whenever, he’s on a picture it means, “you’re being creepy about a kid” and has been used to track down real pedophiles by authorities and Chris Hansen. However, this doesn’t stop people from being offended by him. Also, it might repel more trick or treaters than attract especially if they’re with their parents.

40. Come to this house and see nude girls now.

Now this gives "trick or treat" an inappropriate new meaning. Still, I hope this pumpkin display is at an actual strip joint and not some private residence.  Seriously, why?

Now this gives “trick or treat” an inappropriate new meaning. Still, I hope this pumpkin display is at an actual strip joint and not some private residence. No one in their right mind would want this on their doorstep. Seriously, why?

41. Here the pumpkin chef reads a recipe while relieving himself.

If this is how the filling in pumpkin pie is made, then I'm going to barf. Seriously, this is really disgusting.

42. For those in the family way, why not break the news with a pumpkin display like this?

This pumpkin reminds me of those stomach cakes I saw when researching baby shower cakes. Let's just say this is less heartwarming than just poor taste. Sorry, expectant parents.

43. For those welcoming their bundle of joy on this Halloween, here’s a little pumpkin to  commemorate the occasion.

I've seen a lot of pumpkin birth scenes on the internet. And let me say, it's hard to believe unless you've seen them. Still, not an appropriate Halloween subject no matter how scary birth may be.

44. When you get Ablolut Vodka, you get absolutely buzzed.

Can't believe that this won second place at a pumpkin carving contest. Too bad it's bound to offend the neighbors, especially with the little pumpkin puking.

45. Never put  a jack-o’-lantern in your yard for you’d never know when they’ll attack.

This is just too graphic for children trick or treaters. Let's just say, one look at this and a child may be too traumatized to either carve pumpkins or do any landscaping.

46. And now, kids, this is how pumpkin pie is made.

So this is basically a way you can get a kid not to eat pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving again since they'll think it's pumpkin shit.

47. Sometimes pumpkins need to pay for college somehow.

 A stripper pumpkin with a thong full of money, now I've seen everything. Still, this pumpkin display would make kids ask their parents, "Why does this pumpkin have its underwear with money?" I don't think they want to answer that.

48. Guess this pumpkin couldn’t stand this cruel world any longer.

Okay, now this is just plain wrong. Seriously, suicide is nothing to laugh about, especially via shotgun. Also, very graphic with the pumpkin stuff on the wall.

Okay, now this is just plain wrong. Seriously, suicide is nothing to laugh about, especially via shotgun. Also, very graphic with the pumpkin stuff on the wall.

49. Have the time of your reich, I mean life with this pumpkin tribute of Dirty Dancing.

What it's supposed to be: A scene from Dirty Dancing featuring Patrick Swayze. What it looks like: Someone doing a Nazi salute. Moral: some scenes in pumpkins may look really different than what the carver intended.

50. Looks like this pumpkin had a bit too much to drink.

Now humor relating to drunk people puking may be funny for an adult audience. Yet, it's not appropriate Halloween humor for most trick or treaters. Also, very messy.
