I love the look of monograms. Last year, I wanted to carve an artificial pumpkin with something that would would last longer than just the Halloween holiday. The result was this monogram R for my front steps. This font style definitely has a Halloween feel so this year I may try a more traditional font style. While I didn't necessarily love the look of the carved artificial pumpkin during the day (I still think real looks so much better), I love that it lasts forever and I can pull it out every fall season.
