  1. Whip up a vitamin-rich, “Model-Approved” DIY Pumpkin Face Mask


  1. Turn the seeds into a tasty snack.



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.


What fun things have you done with pumpkins?
