Light up a trick-or-treater's way with this bright spin on a jack-o'-lantern. Cut a hole in the bottom of a large pumpkin, and scoop out pulp and seeds. Download our lantern template. (Adjust template size as needed to fit your pumpkin.) Trace the template onto pumpkin in pencil. Use a knife to cut out the \"glass\" portion of the lantern, then paint image desired colors. Insert armature wire into the sides of the pumpkin as shown to create a decorative handle. Place candle inside and light.

Squash the pumpkin competition with this clever no-carve fella. Cut out a piece of white felt, and hand-stitch a border using brown embroidery floss (joann.com). Attach two small light brown felt circles to the white felt piece with hot-glue to create nostrils. Hot-glue white felt piece to lower portion of butternut squash. For each eye, sew a dark button to a slightly larger white felt circle (use white thread to mimic the pupil of the eye) and glue to squash as shown. Download our moose ear patterns. Pin patterns to brown felt, and cut out two of each template. Use brown embroidery floss to sew matching pieces together, leaving a small opening. Insert cotton stuffing and hand-stitch closed. Hot-glue ears to top of the squash.

Add homespun charm to your decor with our tepee and campfire. Download and print our cross-stitch patterns. (Adjust pattern size as needed.) Tape onto artificial, carvable pumpkins (store.funkins.com). (Trust us: You'll want to display these year after year.) Punch through the pattern's cross-stitch points with an awl (walmart.com). Use a jab saw (homedepot.com) to cut an opening in the bottom of both pumpkins large enough for your hand to work inside. Cross-stitch using a tapestry needle and yarn (Lion Brand Yarn in Seaspray, Oliveish, and Mustard; joann.com). For tepee support poles and campfire logs, adhere twigs with hot-glue.
