Spooky Halloween Jack o’ Lantern and Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Not only will this Jack o’ Lantern look great on your front porch, but the reward of the pumpkin soup after carving it warms up any cool and damp October day.



Spooky Halloween Jack o' Lantern

Supplies Needed for the Jack o’ Lantern:

pumpkin for carving
- pricking needle
- Jack o’ Lantern face pattern
- sharp knives
- ice cream scoop

Craft Pattern:

Craft Pattern - Jack o Lantern Face

Jack o’ Lantern Face Pattern






To create this Jack o’ Lantern, you first need to cut a star shaped lid at the top of the pumpkin. Once you have the lid removed, first remove the stringy pumpkin meat and the seeds. Then take an ice-cream scoop and start scooping the side walls of the pumpkin until the walls are about 1/2 inch or 2.5 cm thick. Keep the good pumpkin meat in an extra bowl to make the pumpkin soup. Recipe below. Take the “Jack o’ Lantern Face Pattern” (link below) and print it out to a size that is appropriate for the size of the pumpkin. Place the pattern over the pumpkin and use a pricking needle and prick holes on the pattern markings to indicate where to cut afterwards. Then cut the markings to form the face. Once finished, insert a small candle or a tea light at the bottom of the pumpkin and light it up. The candle should not be too high or it may burn the lid. If using a higher candle, keep lid off when burning the candle.
