Watermelon Jack-o'-Lantern

Most people this year will choose pumpkins to carve for their jack-o'-lanterns. Don't be one of those people and dare to be different. Instead of using a pumpkin, try using a different food that most people wouldn't normally think of using. The same concept will still be applied! You choose the base object, cut off the top, carve out the insides, carve out your jack-o'-lantern's face or design, and voila!

Maybe even try using a food that you can actually eat like a stuffed pepper or burger. Doesn't that sound crafty and delicious? Let's break the tradition for once and try something new for once.


If heat is still lingering in your area during Halloween season, keep the summer vibes going by using a watermelon for your jack-o'-lantern! They make big canvases, so you have plenty of space to show off your creativity!
