geek and nerdy pumpkin ideas for halloween cover

Decorating with is the most famous fall and Halloween tradition. Jack-o-lanterns have been cut for many years to light the Halloween and today they are still popular. Tired of usual pumpkin décor and carved lanterns? I’m going to strike with nerdy and geek pumpkin designs that definitely catch an eye!

Star Wars Pumpkins

fans, get ready to swoon over! These pumpkins, painted and carved, are gonna turn your world upside down! If you are good at painting, you can make R2D2, BB-8 and Yoda head without any carving, just paint the pumpkin and draw what you need with a sharpie. Ready to carve? Make lanterns with Yoda, Death Star, Darth Vader or just carve the outer side of the pumpkin without turning it into a lantern. Bad at both techniques? Dress up your pumpkin into Chewbacca putting fur on it and adding faux eyes and nose, and voila!

Harry Potter Pumpkins

Now for Harry Potter lovers! You can turn your pumpkin into any Harry Potter thing, beginning from a usual pumpkin Harry head and up to difficult owl craft. Paint what you like on your pumpkin using favorite symbols and characters from this series or carve your own lantern with Harry, Ron, Hogwarts, brooms, owls and so on. The most impressive craft is an owl made of a pumpkin, several gourds, cardboard wings and pinecones. And again, everything here depends on your creativity and techniques that you can use.
