Obviously, one of the most beloved traditions in October is the carving of those big orange vegetables called pumpkins. When they’re not being used for PSLs, pies, cookies, cakes, and all of the best Trader Joes goodies, pumpkins are at our artistic mercy. Whether you choose the traditional route of carving, or prefer to spice up your pumpkins with paint and glitter, your options are endless!

Now, when it comes to carving, painting, or gluing things onto our pumpkins, we love taking to Instagram to find the newest, most original, and coolest ghoulish design ideas. So without further ado, here are the best pumpkin decorating ideas we’ve come across so far this year…
