Halloween - Jack 'o Lanterns

Jack O' Lanterns

Each halloween for the last few years I have carved a Jack o' Lantern or two or 5! Each year I got better at it and each year I agonized over tossing my creations out. In 2001 I found some foam pumpkins at Micheals craft store and I carved one. You cannot tell the difference between the fake and real pumpkins! I like the pumpkin master series for most carvings but I have created my own on occasion. Another method I use is to take a photograph and using Photoshop I reduce the colors down to two. I then use spray glue to attach the printed image to a pumpkin. Then using a pointed bur bit in my Dremel tool I scrape away the rind of the pumpkin leaving the meat still there.
