The great thing about these jack-o-lantern’s is that there is pretty much no waste! Unlike a pumpkin, where it’s soul purpose is to become your smiling jack-o-lantern, these veggies and fruits can be hollowed out to create a cute decoration and you can eat it too! Obviously most these jack-o-lanterns won’t last as long as a pumpkin would, but they’re purely for fun!
The method to make these jack-o-lanterns is pretty much universal: lob off the top (or bottom), hollow it out and cut out a face or image – the sky’s the limit!
I love this carved pineapple! It comes with it’s own luscious head of hair.
This avo is just the cutest. They won’t last long after you carve them though, so take a pic, show your friends and then make some awesome guacamole.
Orange jack-o-lanterns are a cute decoration as well as an air freshener! Did you know that oranges can also be made into candles? Click here for the tutorial.
Here’s one where you cut the bottom off instead of the top. These butternut squash ghosties would be a perfect addition to your front porch for Halloween!
I love when jack-o-lanterns have “hair”! Wear gloves when you make this one, beet juice stains EVERYTHING.
You can create these turnip jack-o-lanterns and tie a string around the top to hang them. Did you know that the Irish have used turnips to create jack-o-lanterns for over 700 years. According to Irish folklore, a man called Jack O’Lantern was sentenced to roam the earth for eternity. A ghostly figure of the night, O’Lantern walks with a burning coal inside of a carved-out turnip to light his way.
You could carve this bell pepper jack-o-lantern, then use it to make stuffed peppers! At least, that’s what I would do. 🙂
Make your healthy snack into a cute face! These carved apples will be such a hit with your kids, they’ll want them all year long.
Yup, these potat-o-lanterns are the actual cutest. Cut the bottom portion off so that the potato won’t roll around, light a tealight under it, and there, you have the cutest lantern ever.
These sweet potato jack-o-lanterns are pretty darn sweet. All you need is a small knife to make them, and then you can use them in a mash later!
You don’t eat the skin anyway, so why not turn this summer treat into a watermelon-o-lantern!
You work too hard for your money to throw it all away on full price when you don't have to!
