Most of us limit our yearly Halloween pumpkin carving to the standard two-triangles-and-a-mouth "face," if anything. (Though some nix the knifework entirely and want to cover everything in glitter.) If you're game to trying something a little different this year, the below 31 Jack O'Lantern ideas will give you a nice little challenge to work towards. For most of these ideas, you'll want to trade that blunt steak knife that's been with you through two apartment moves in favor of specialized sculpting tools.
