It seems everywhere you turn this time of year, there's a pumpkin — pumpkin spice this, pumpkin spice that, pumpkin patches, pumpkin pies, and even pumpkin head photoshoots on TikTok. With so many pumpkins around, there's no reason why you shouldn't have a few pumpkin puns for Instagram prepped and ready to go for every picture you may take.

Pairing a pumpkin pun with each of your fall snaps just makes sense. After all, this season is basically pumpkin season. For every fall foliage photo, seasonal snap of you sipping a PSL, and selfie in your oversized orange crewneck, you need some pumpkin puns to caption those pics on the ‘gram. Just as hard as it is finding the right pumpkin in the patch, it can be difficult coming up with the right pumpkin patch puns for Instagram.

Use some jack-o-lantern captions for those candid snaps of you carving pumpkins with your roomies, or some silly pumpkin puns of you having a gourd time watching Halloween movies. You could even join in on the TikTok trend of placing a carved out pumpkin on your head — a la Dwight from The Office — and have a photoshoot in the backyard. When the time comes to post your fave snaps and even a TikTok video of your own, just use any of these pumpkin puns to make all your followers LOL. Below, you’ll find 65 pumpkin puns for all occasions.
