Meet The Gourd Family

I'd don't know about you but I'm ready for a trip to the pumkin patch. Which is why I'd like you to "Meet The Gourd Family" from the very talented design team at Martha

Dead Head Pumpkins
Don't be shy: Show off your top-notch collection of bodiless heads by placing them atop pedestals. You can put the display next to a stair railing or adjacent to a walkway outdoors -- in fact, anywhere you think a leering head would be a nice decorative touch.

Draw faces you like, or print our templates.

Leaf-Carved Pumpkin Lanterns
Whether you're carving, decorating, or using this classic fall gourd for Halloween inspiration, our pumpkin ideas will excite you all season. Trick-or-treaters and Halloween guests should feel more welcome than wary ascending a staircase lit up with leaf-carved pumpkin lanterns.

Pumpkin Light Catchers
These paper decorations are as much trick as treat. At first they seem to be traditional symbols of the season, but when they're placed in front of a light -- surprise! -- their happy (or scary) expressions shine through.
