4. All About That Bass

This lifelike fish is jumping right out of the pumpkin. Makes you want to head to the lake one last time before Halloween, doesn’t it?

8. Bambi in a Halloween Pumpkin

Carve a simple hole in a pumpkin (much easier than the other designs) and let your kids set up a nature scene inside.

9. Elk Bugle

It’s tough not to admire the bugle of a mature elk in the mountains. Bring the scene home to your doorstep.

10. Have some sheds?

Surely you have a couple shed antlers sitting around. Just lay them around your pumpkins for some easy fall decoration.

11. Bedded buck

I think we’d all like to sneak up on a bedded buck like that.

12. Fall leaves

These are the few fall leaves that will last the whole season.

Since you’re not carving into the pumpkin, it should last months.

13. Buck Silhouette

Last, this is a very easy stencil you could do at home. Simply carve out the sections with a small pumpkin saw.
