Introduction: Jack O' Lantern Brain!

About: I'm a 15 year old homeschooler. i like woodworking, video gaming, and hanging out with my dog.

This is a silly take on the classic jack o' lantern! It would be a fun addition to a Halloween display.

Supplies

  • Small white pumpkin
  • Medium pumpkin
  • Pumpkin carving tools
  • Wood carving tool

Step 1: Finding the Right Pumpkins

The white pumpkin should be about half the size of the orange pumpkin.

Most grocery stores have many different sizes and colors of pumpkins.

Step 2: Carving the Hole for the Brain

Cut the top off the orange pumpkin and clean out the inside.

Test fit the white pumpkin.

Cut away the orange pumpkin a small amount at a time until the white pumpkin fits tightly.

Step 3: Carving the Brain

Cut an opening on the bottom of the white pumpkin.

Clean out the inside of the white pumpkin.

Draw a brain pattern using an online image as your inspiration.

Use a v cut woodworking tool to carve away the skin of the white pumpkin on the pattern.

Carve a surprised or scared in the orange pumpkin.

The white pumpkin should be held up by fitting tightly in the orange pumpkin.

Step 4: Finding the Right Spot

Add a battery operated jack o' lantern candle and enjoy the spooky glowing brain!
