17 Pumpkin Carvings for Adults That Are Amazing Odes to Pop-Culture Icons
We've been carving pumpkins since we were, oh, 5 years old — so it's definitely gotten to that point that we're kinda over the same ol', same ol' jack-o'-lanterns. But that's not to say our pumpkin love doesn't run deep. We still love those beautiful gourds as much as we love binge-watching Hocus Pocus 50 times in a row. It's just that we've got this quiet yearning for a different kind of pumpkin-carving.
In the spirit of our pumpkin love and lust for new pumpkin adventures, we had our awesome design team put together elaborate pop-culture pumpkin-carving templates. Because there is no better way to bond with your creepy neighbors than sharing an obsession with Beyoncé and Doctor Who.
Beyoncé pumpkin carvings
Bookish pumpkin carvings
Words, words, words
Starbucks lover templates
Game of Thrones sigils
The Doctor's TARDIS and some wine glasses for ShondaLand Thursdays
And an Illuminati pumpkin carving template, since it's their world and we're just living in it
If you're having a party full of friends with eclectic tastes, you can also print the whole booklet of templates, too.
