Literary Pumpkins- Bookish Inspiration for Halloween

When my brother send me a picture of this pumpkin based on the one ring in Lord of The Rings, he started something of an obsession…. my heart melted a bit. All I knew was that I loved it, I wanted it, I neeeds it…. my precioussss pumpkin…

I realised I needed to seek more bookish pumpkin fun and came across this brilliant post from A Book Lover’s Diary of 20 Pumpkin Carvings Inspired By Books. These have been made by grandmasters. They are not for the likes of me to try carving at home. I’ll have to cheat something like these cute (but under carved) pumpkins inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven from Country Living and Etsy

What are the best literary pumpkins you’ve come across?

    I don’t think I’ve ever come across a literary pumpkin. I have seen some amazing pumpkin creations though. One of my favourites is a pumpkin that is being sick – the vomit being made from the left over pumpkin seeds and pulp. Rather gruesome but very witty.

      I’ve seen that one! It’s really funny. And a few murder victim pumpkins where the seeds are the brains… 😦 there are some very clever and very disturbed people about 🙂
