Justin Bieber, Steve Jobs, Spock: How to Make Ten Celebrity Pumpkins

Halloween is almost here and you have a dilemma. There's a pumpkin on your doorstep ready to be carved, but what do you do? Sure you can do the standard Jack O' Lantern, but how boring is that? Why not turn that giant orange gourd into a work of art? 

It's actually easy since there are now websites devoted to providing budding pumpkin artistes with patterns. A few good ones are ZombiePumpkins and TMZ (yes, that TMZ), where you can download stencils to carve lifelike images of Charlie Sheen, Ozzie Osbourne, and Johnny Cash to name a few.

To get you started, we've come up with ten of our favorites, ranked by fear factor.
