‘Tis the season for many things besides being jolly. Halloweeeeeen is coming up and that means costumes, candy, parties, and pumpkins. A lot of people buy pumpkins to make jack o’ lanterns, but they get stuck trying to think of some cool or scary design and end up making some messed up looking face…basically, not a cool jack o’ lantern.
I’m going to share some carving ideas to help you out. DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for you butchering these designs and making some messed up – uncool looking jack o’ lantern. But I’m sure you’ll do just fine because I’m no Michelangelo sculpting the statue of David and I’ve managed to do OK up to this point.
1) THE SIMPLE
The simple jack o’ lantern is my specialty. I’ve mastered it over the years and you can too!
2) THE SILLY
What’s not to like about a barfing pumpkin?! C’mon, it’s hilarious!
3) THE SCARY
Still gives me nightmares…
4) THE DETAILED
For the veterans and the artsy-types. Anyone else is welcome to try this type of jack o’ lantern, but if you end up with something that looks like mashed sweet potatoes or Sloth from The Goonies…don’t say you weren’t warned (although, Sloth might make a pretty cool jack o’ lantern)…
There you have it. Try your hand at any of these carving ideas, or just do whatever you want.
