Looking for a way to make your pumpkins stand out from the crowd this Halloween? The folks at Photojojo have a neat project that will not only grab attention from trick or treaters -- it'll also give you a new way to exhibit your photo masterpieces. (And you'll save a lot of time and effort on carving pumpkins, as well!)

Photojojo's gourdy project suggests taking a pumpkin and turning it into a temporary photo frame, complete with your image printed on tracing paper. A real photo frame holds the picture in place, and adds some visual pizzazz.

Strikes us as a pretty neat idea for photo fans, and one we can't recall having seen done before. Hop on over to Photojojo for full directions, and see an example of the finished result below...
