1. Orange Brownie Trifle Jack-O-Lanterns: For the best smelling jack-o-lanterns ever, try out these adorable miniature jack-o-lanterns which are made from oranges filled with brownie trifles. You can even let everyone in your family make their own jack-o-lantern before you serve up dessert.
2. Paper Mache Jack-O-Lanterns: It's sad to carve a pumpkin and then watch it turn moldy just a few days later. If you want a jack-o-lantern that looks like a pumpkin but lasts more than a week or two, you can make jack-o-lanterns out of paper maché.
3. Watermelon Jack-O-Lanterns: Unless you're roasting the seeds, the insides of a pumpkin usually go completely to waste after you carve it. But if you carve a watermelon instead, you can turn those insides into a delicious fruit salad. Plus the green color of a watermelon opens up all kinds of carving possibilities, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
4. Glowing Balloon Jack-O-Lanterns: Are you decorating for a Halloween party but want to avoid the mess (and funky burning pumpkin smell) of pumpkins and candles? Just draw a jack-o-lantern face into a balloon and fill it with a glow stick to make a festive balloon jack-o-lantern.
7. Butternut Squash Jack-O-Lanterns: Pumpkins get all the attention at Halloween, but the truth is that almost all kinds of squash can be carved into a jack-o-lantern. Or for a softer, sweeter kind of jack-o-lantern, paint a face on a squash and use succulents for hair.
8. Paper Bag Jack-O-Lanterns: Looking for a Halloween craft idea that's extremely affordable? Kids can go wild making as many jack-o-lanterns as they want when they're just cutting faces in orange paper bags and lighting them with battery-operated tea lights.
