If you have  honeycomb pumpkins at home, there are many ways you can jazz it up to give it more style. For example, if you have stickers of facial parts (googly eyes, big smiles, etc etc), you can stick them on directly to make a jack-o-lantern face. You can make cutouts of triangles out of black paper and stick them onto the pumpkin to make a face as well. To make honeycomb pumpkins into hanging decorations, tie a string around the stem and hang them from the ceiling or your porch awning.

Table decor like this black wood table top set are really great to add a little spooky touch to a table. With a little sprucing up, it can become even more unique.
