Pumpkin carving is one of our favourite Halloween pastimes, because as adults, we get to show off our artistic skills and get pretty crafty with a knife.

Whether you're a pro with sharp objects (like some of these artists below) or like big chunky cut-outs of eyes, noses and mouths, pumpkin carvings are one of the best ways to celebrate Halloween. And if picking up a knife and scooping out pumpkin guts doesn't sound like a fun idea, you can always try no-carve or painted pumpkins — these are great for kids

For ideas, you can check out all of these below or check out some of these patterns that you can trace at home.

Below are 100 of our favourite pumpkin carving ideas from Instagram and around the web. Want to add yours to our gallery? Send it to us at CanadaLiving@huffingtonpost.com
