LeBron James is the type of athlete that seems to be on anything and everything already, so why not a pumpkin? If you plan on carving up a LeBron or any famous face, make a stencil and take your time. You don’t want a visitor to your home asking who that is on the pumpkin.
4. Classic Frankenstein
This type of carving is actually more of sculpting. Only the most advanced do-it-yourself people should attempt this Frankenstein, but other designs using this technique are much more reasonable.

This pumpkin combines two favorites, word play and pumpkin pie. Sometime the most simplest designs are the most memorable. Put this Pumpkin Pi on your front porch and instantly give your neighbors the allusion that you are much smarter.
