With Halloween just around the corner, many of us will be picking our buying a pumpkin or two ready to carve on the night.
As the fruit has grown in popularity, replacing more traditional produce such as a turnip, people have turned to social media to show off elaborate and arty carvings.
If you are getting ready to carve a pumpkin this Halloween, here's a step by step guide along with face ideas and top tips for Instagram ready creation.
A large and small serrated knife
A large spoon
A marker pen or face template
Tealight and matches
Take your large, carving pumpkin and cut off the top, about 5cm down from the stalk, with a serrated knife.
Using a large spoon, scrape out the seeds and fibres. Keep the seeds to be roasted for a tasty snack.
Either use a marker pen to draw out the face you want, or look online for some detailed templates.
Then, using a small serrated knife, cut out the face shapes (remember the small pieces of pumpkin from this can be used in cooking).
Place a tealight in the pumpkin, light, then place the top back on.
If you want to take things to the next level, and aren't much of an artist, head online for a range of templates which can be printed out and used this Halloween.
