Good Old Jack
To create the Jack lantern as it is known for many years, you need to remember that a traditional Jack is the one with a triangle nose, happy smile, and no less than four teeth (and no more though). With this type of decoration, you will never be out of fashion. Like a little black dress, such pumpkin decorations have their peculiar charm and recognizable look. Newcomers and old-stagers, show your guests you know what is a real Halloween celebration!

Warning in face expression
If your pumpkin carving experience is not that rich and you have little time for preparation, that is your type stencil to choose among the variety. Or you can make it yourself without any difficulty. Take some circle object to draw the eyes, something of a triangle shape for a nose and square for a mouth. When carving the mouth, skip two smaller squares in the middle of it to create some teeth (a pair of lower and as much in the upper part). This is the scheme for children willing to participate in the activity. Oh, it looks like your pumpkin has some urgent message for you!

This is one more option for people with little expertise in this sphere: spooky and awkward Frankenstein smile makes half the battle! Carve two bars standing for eyes, one a little bigger for the mouth, and pick out either this or that way some more parts to make the mouth line less even. This is already the sight which will make the blood freeze!

To create some funny scene is another option when it comes to pumpkin carving. To imitate that yours had too much fun for a night, you can make a big hole for the mouth and put inside some light substance which is making its way out.

This can serve a notification for the children not to eat too many sweets and for the adults not to run into extremes (especially for those trying to make their dark side drunk for a year). It can also remind graduates about the considerable preparations for the graduation party in which they need to participate having no slight idea what to offer. This is party time!

Kindness itself

Instead of spending hours on your urgent writing task when the world is having fun, pay someone to have an essay written and try to implement some of the pumpkin decorating ideas. Celebrate your happy and kind Halloween!

Message in words 
If you are afraid that the facial expression of your lantern will fail to deliver your message appropriately, carve some words. Just print some spooky exclamations and carve them on one of your pumpkins. Pumpkin decorating ideas of this kind are numerous.

You will like the process! Take a pumpkin which is tall and thin, draw the beards of different size and length around the top, and choose some shocked face stencil with widely opened eyes, knob nose and screaming mouth with a big tooth. Cut off the top and carve the beards. Take off the entrails.  When working with eyes, leave the apple of the eye, cut out the nose, form a mouth having made one big tooth. Using the razor shave the apples and the tooth. To ascertain of your pumpkin’s long life, cover it with some of your household liquids containing bleach. Not only people but the bugs too will stay away from your welcoming decoration!
