10 Scary-Faced Jack-O-Lantern Ideas


What's your jack-o-lantern style? Maybe you're all about cute, funny, or pop-culture-inspired pumpkin carving. But if downright scary is your thing, here's your inspiration.

These scary jack-o-lantern ideas -- including the toothy, anatomical, and just plain weird -- make use of traditional pumpkins for carving, as well as more unusual seasonal veggies like acorn and butternut squash. 

  • Pumpkin Brain Pumpkin Brain

    Double-layer carving creates the look of a Pumpkin With a Brain in this wow-worthy creation from Skull-a-Day.

    Sea glass shards add a menacing look to this otherwise traditional Toothy Jack-O-Lantern from Intimate Weddings.

  • Butternut Skull Butternut Skull
