5.  Cut off the top, scoop out the insides, fill with candy and hang from a tree. Voila! A pumpkin piñata.

 

6.  Use small, hollowed-out pumpkins as serving bowls for soups or stews. (Bonus: fewer dishes to wash!)

 

7.  Fill it with flowers for a beautiful fall arrangement.

8.  Make a pie in it like our early American settlers did. No crust required!

 

9.  Build a pumpkin snowman: paint 2-3 pumpkins white, stack on top of each other, and top with an upturned flowerpot hat. Tie a scarf between the top and second pumpkins, paint on eyes and buttons, and your pumpkins are all set for winter.
