1 min


If Halloween comes and goes and you haven’t carved a pumpkin, something is seriously wrong. In fact, can you even claim to celebrate Halloween if you don’t celebrate with jack-o’-lanterns? The answer is no, so start planning.

Before you start, you will need all your supplies. A pumpkin, of course, of good size and health is recommended. You can get carving tools for a great price at Broulim’s, Walmart, and more. We also suggest you get a cheap tablecloth to work on.

So what will you carve this year? Something cute, spooky, funny? Here are nine jack-o’-lantern ideas to get you started this year!
