Spice Up Your Downey Apartment With Pumpkins

Pumpkin Carving

Ready to make the most of October? The easiest way to do this is by taking part in some do-it-yourself crafts, such as pumpkin carving! Here are some great ideas that will light up your Downey apartment.


Squiggles Pumpkin

These fun pumpkins are not like your typical jack-o-lanterns. Find a squiggle design that you like by either looking online or looking at items in your own home. Carve out the design all over your pumpkin and put it on display.


Abstract Leaves Pumpkin

Leaves are one of the iconic fall symbols so it makes sense to put them on a carved pumpkin. Get created and give it a 3D effect. Leaves come in all shapes and sizes, so your options are unlimited.


Skeleton Hand

This idea requires two pumpkins stacked on top of each other. On one pumpkin carve out the arm of the skeleton. On the smaller pumpkin, carve out the hand of the skeleton. Make sure both are centered so when you stack them on top of each other they align.
