Most people just create a rendition of some sort of face, but if you want to really stand out, here are top 5 unique pumpkin carving ideas to try out.
Your Name / Family Name
This is a very unique design if you want everyone to know who made it. Whether you decide to put your first name or even make it a family pumpkin with your last name on it, be sure to make it different.

It will be something unique to you or your family and you can display it outside for all to see.
