Non-Pumpkin Jack O’ Lanterns

If you’re an expat like me who is transplanted in the Middle East, then there are other holiday occasions that you just can’t celebrate the same way you do back home.  It’s only lately when the Philippines caught up on the Halloween fever but other countries are already celebrating this spooky event with much gusto for the longest time!

So, living in other parts of the world where Halloween is not as famous as it should be, and when pumpkin is not a staple, you have to be innovative if you want to decorate your home without the usual pumpkin Jack O’ Lanterns.

Here are some ways to still have that Jack O’ Lantern decor in your home without using a pumpkin. You’ll be surprised to know that many fruits/vegetables and other materials can pass as your cute or spooky Jack O’ Lantern.

    HI Ria. These are cool ideas. Love the clay designs, so full of attitude (lol). This year, I plan to do the pumpkin one. For the design? I am thinking one of the characters of the famous ” In the Night Garden”. Hope I can do it for my little miss. For the past years, I did angry bird and sponge bob.
