Pumpkins – How do you decorate yours?

It seems to be quite a serious question these days.  How DO you decorate your pumpkins?

I remember when I was younger and carving a pumpkin was just about making two holes for the eyes, a triangle for the nose and if you were feeling really creative, a zig zag for the mouth.  Nowadays I am amazed by the designs that people are carving in to their pumpkins and it would appear that people are decorating them with all sort of interesting things.  I must confess that last year I was guilty of this and thoroughly enjoyed glitter dipping some very sweet munchkins that I had found in the supermarket. You can see my tutorial here.
