Forget Pumpkins—We're Carving This Fruit for Halloween 2016

If Pinterest is any indication, pumpkins are so last year. This year is all about pineapple carving, as evidenced by influencers like Lauren Conrad sharing photos of their pineapple jack-o'-lantern creations. Although nothing says Halloween like a freshly carved pumpkin, we're all about innovation when it comes to seasonal decorating, costumes, and, of course, pumpkin carving.

These innovative decorations are the perfect festive touch for coastal homes, as well as for anyone looking to deviate from tradition a bit. And why stop at pineapples? As Brit+Co points out, you can easily carve different kinds of melons into jack-o'-lanterns too. Using a carving knife, a sharp shaping knife, a melon baller, and tea candles, you can make your home the most creative stop on the block.

Here are some of our favorite pineapple jack-o'-lanterns:
