What time of the year is it? Oh, wait! Is it September? It Means October is on the way, and so does halloweeennnn! The best time of the year, or should we say “SPOOKY” time of the year where you see pumpkins and autumn leaves everywhere. It is not officially Halloween unless you have carved your pumpkins, giving them unique and horror aesthetics.
Do you remember the time when Jack O Lantern’s faces were all about carving simple triangular eyes, a sharp nose, and a pointed mouth? Ending the look by placing a burning candle or bulb inside. But now, the world has changed! People have gotten more artistic in pumpkin carving. You can see from horror-movie villains to celebrity faces carved intricately.
So, here is the list of best trendy ideas from hilarious to scary pumpkin faces, from calm to wickedly carved designs, about Jack O Lantern faces to try this year.
Make Your Pumpkin Teeth-y Tooth-y
The easiest Jack O Lantern face practice is to add teeth to your pumpkin. It will make it scary jack o lantern face enough. You can do it either by carving a zig-zag mannered pattern into pumpkin skin, or you can use toothpicks. Especially if you have giant pumpkins, fit the large-sized, irregularly broken toothpicks and give your pumpkin a look of jagged teeth. And, yes, there is also an alternative: try inserting plastic-made vampire fangs.
Wicked Witch Pumpkin
Halloween is all about scary things, so why not try turning your pumpkin into a wicked witch?!
Take a pumpkin, make it stand upright with stem support, pick washable markers and start drawing evil eyes, pointy eyebrows, and a scary-looking curved mouth. Draw the way you like but make it give a wretched look. Start scraping away the top-most layer of pumpkin skin for exposing the disheveled flesh underneath. Finish your “witch-y pumpkin” by creating the witch’s mane.
Most people don’t like cutting, slicing, and carving pumpkins as they find any artisan job. One thing: Jack O Lantern faces need no skills. Second: you can keep it simple, just like this piece. Once you have printed out the stencil, start carving, and don’t forget to add a crooked smile. The perfect pick for beginners!

Carve Out A Message
An excellent way to use pumpkins on Halloween is to carve their skins with a ghostly message for spooky feels.

Be unique with style! Be classy with fonts!
Bring Black Magic To your Jack O Lantern face
