Other than dressing up on Oct. 31, the beloved Halloween tradition that has been around since Day One is pumpkin carving. You and your entire squad probably have plans to hit up a pumpkin patch and pick out the cutest ones. Then, you'll continue the fun by bringing your pumpkins home and turning them into spooky jack-o-lanterns. While you're carving, be the best host you can be by serving up pumpkin spice lattes and chocolatey treats. (Your friends will thank you.) With all of the fun there is to be had, you'll need some pumpkin carving puns for when you want to post pics to Instagram.
The most difficult part about pumpkin carving is choosing the perfect design. You could go for something scary, a cute nod to a popular meme from this year, or opt for a traditional jack-o-lantern face. If you really want to give your social media followers pumpkin to talk about, scope out a few elaborate stencils on Pinterest.
If you're great with a paintbrush, plan on painting a colorful gourd, and then bedazzle it. No matter what you decide to do, you and your besties have to pose for a group pic with all of your finished masterpieces. Since you'll be too busy carving your pumpkin and sipping your PSL, I've assembled this list of 30 puns for you to pick your caption from.
