Pumpkin carving never fails to inspire me — even when I don't really plan on buying my own pumpkin to carve, I eventually give in cause I get so inspired by all the other pumpkins I see! Basic jack o'lantern grins can vary greatly and there are a multitude of other ideas out there for the skilled carver or the novice.
I personally think Martha Stewart has some of the best ideas so I've rounded up my favorites from her gallery. I also came across a completely different site that shows how to turn your pumpkin into the Death Star! May the force be with you on your carving adventures!
