October 20, 2009 - Filed under Halloween, How-to, Inspiration, Thanksgiving

Not all pumpkins have to be spooky, or even orange for that matter. Check out some of these gorgeous pumpkins for a less traditional look. These would also be great for Thanksgiving decorations as well.

1. Use an electric drill in varying sizes to get a quick and sophisticated look. You can also use a hammer and small cookie cutters to create a similar look.

2. Get inspired by patterns around you. Use lino cutters to carve out an intricate pattern.

3. This autumn centerpiece uses a flea market chandelier turned upside-down. (You could also spray the chandelier black for a spookier display at your Halloween party)

4. Use woodcarving tools or small pieces of pipe to create a lace-like pattern.

5. This thorny pattern is inspired by antique chinaware.

6. Light your front steps or your living room, with a lantern inspired pumpkin.

Looking to add some decoration to your Thanksgiving or Halloween table? Martha Stewart has step-by-step instructions on making these candles from hollowed out squash shells. All you need is a couple of different sized squash, and some wax, you can even re-use the wax from old candles you have lying around.
