Jack O’ Lantern
This has been the most common Halloween lighting idea for centuries. This may not be the Newest way to light up your Halloween, but it has been proven to provide a fun and time for anyone involved. This Halloween Lighting Idea allows you to have the creativity flow as you carve your pumpkin. There is never a bad Jack O’ Lantern!
- A Medium/Large Size pumpkin
- Medium-Large Size knife
- (optional) Pumpkin carving kit
- Thumb Tac
Cut a circle around the top of the pumpkin Stem and set aside. Lift the recently cut piece off the pumpkin and begin to get rid of all of the pumpkin guts. Use the spoon to go around the inside of the pumpkin to ensure the pumpkin is clean on the inside. Next, use the thumb tac to put tiny holes in the pumpkin to use as a stencil for when you start to carve the pumpkin. Once you have cut along the holes of your pumpkin, place a candle in it and watch it glow!
