Make Spooky, Last-Minute Jack-O'-Lanterns for Halloween Without Any Pumpkins

Love carving jack-o'-lanterns, but hate dealing with all the gunky pumpkin seeds afterward? There are plenty of no-carve ways to decorate a pumpkin for Halloween, but what if you're sick of the orange pumpkin aesthetic and still want to get your hands dirty carving something?

Luckily for you, there are a number of non-pumpkin alternatives to choose from. You can make jack-o'-lanterns out of gourds, squash, turnips, and other hefty vegetables. That, and you can also make a watermelon jack-o'-lantern, which carries the double-advantage of providing fruit for your spooky Halloween party afterwards.

Don't want to deal with organic things altogether? You can still make spooky jack-o'-lanterns out of empty milk cartons, mason jars, balloons, paper bags, and more.
