I am terrible at pumpkin carving. I have zero patience and skills but I try every year anyway. I might be able to get away with doing some of these pumpkins though because we found some Idaho themed pumpkin carving ideas that pretty much anyone can do.

How To Carve A BSU Broncolantern

    Idaho Vandal "I"

    Essentially all you have to do is carve a capital "I" into a pumpkin. It is a pretty basic design but for someone who really loves the Vandals, it is perfect.

    A little more complicated than just the "I" if you carved the letters "BSU" into a pumpkin it could be pretty cool.

    Outline of Idaho

    Sure Idaho isn't straight but you don't have to focus on all the jagged edges. Just do a brief outline of the state.

    A potato

    Really that is just an oblong circle. That is super easy and definitely Idaho

  • 5

    A Heart

    Just a simple heart would be great. Hearts are all over Idaho, whether it be IdaHome or something else.

    Paint it Ida"Home"

    Rather than carving, if you are better with a paintbrush you can paint the pumpkin and do the IdahoHome logo with the heart in the place of Twin Falls. That would be cool

    A Sugar Beet

    Also a pretty easy shape to obtain, mostly just a circle. Even if people don't know what all of them would be doesn't mean they aren't worth doing.
