Continuing my Thursday post on Halloween and painted pumpkins with a set of inventive Jack-o-lanterns. Scary faces seem to be the ubiquitous choice for lanterns, so I’m always tickled to see other things carved on them.
Brilliant use of the natural features of the pumpkin:

Polka dot lantern:
When dots are more to your liking.
A special pick for my sisters! 🙂

It looks like a composite, using photos of Jack-o-lanterns, if I had to guess. A very, very neat way of seeing an everyday (holiday) thing from an unexpected angle!
