Jack O' Lanterns: 20 Odd, Amazing & Awe Inspiring Pumpkin Carvings That I Won’t Be Doing With My Kid!

The Pumpkin of Yore

What happened to the good old fashioned Jack O’ Lantern? The one with the triangle eyes, matching nose and square teeth? Pumpkin carving of yore has been replaced with a quest to outdo the neighbors near and far with originality artistry, and awesomeness.

Over the weekend we made a pilgrimage to local Target and there were a slew of kits to transform the humble pumpkin into the pop culture realm from a Disney Princess pumpkin to Spiderman.  But those kits? They still take skill and patience, two things kids often don’t yet possess.  This year, I am yet again sticking with my old school guns and we’ll be doing the basic triangle, square, easy-peasy pumpkin carving.

Although I do opt to stay true to the simple Jack O’ Lantern, it’s hard to not be impressed with the craftsmanship that goes into to these awe-inspiring, albeit very temporary, works of pumpkin art.

Check out these 20 insanely awesome Jack O’ Lantern designs. 20 of which I  – for one won’t be trying at home.
