Make your choice of a Halloween Decoration. Inspirational examples are in the photo. Some of them can be lighted.

If you want a specific carved design (happy or scary), you can draw it, and we will step outside (for ventilation) where I will carve the eyes, nose, and mouth. Gourds available for this will be on a first-come-first-serve basis (because I only have a few larger gourds).
