How To Make Your Jack-o-Lantern Look Great!

If you want your jack-o-lantern to look amazing this year here are a few easy options for you! These are the easiest and coolest ways to get your pumpkin looking fabulous for this Halloween.

Do you want your pumpkin to be the perfect amount of creepy and cute? Here is a great option for you. These cute mini pumpkins have plastic vampire teeth wedged inside, and toothpicks with eyes for their little monster eyes. Or, if you are wanting to go for the more creepy side you could carve your pumpkin like the image on the left! By not cutting all the way through the pumpkin, you can create huge teeth. This is a great way to get your pumpkin looking astonishing!


If you want your jack-o-lantern to be creepy and weird, trying the sick pumpkin gag is a must. For this carving, you would make a face with an open mouth and leave some pumpkin guts in and spilling out. This makes the pumpkin look like it is vomiting and will look creepy, kind of gross, but awesome to everyone that sees!


If you aren’t a fan of carving pumpkins but you still want to make one, painting is a great option for you! You could paint a cute face on a little pumpkin, or maybe even a creepy face on a big one. There are so many options! One pro to painting on a pumpkin instead of carving is, there is an endless amount of designs that you can create with paint. When you carve a pumpkin it is hard to keep control over the utensil, you may make jagged lines and a lot of mistakes. However, if you are painting a pumpkin you can draw curves easier, as well as being able to fix mistakes by removing the paint or wiping it off before it is dry.


Don’t know what to do with your jack-o-lantern? Make a whole family! The possibilities of the mom, dad, and baby pumpkins are endless! This is perfect if you have a family where you all want your own pumpkins.
