Burlap Jack-O Lantern
For a warm impression, burlap will never fail you. You can make a burlap Jack-o lantern by wrapping the burlap around the pumpkin after you carve it. No need to worry that the carving won’t be seen because once you turn on the light, the character will be clearly seen. We do recommend you use the thin burlap and wrap the pumpkin once without any layer so that the burlap won’t prevent the light from shining.

If you are looking for the scary and popular characteristics of your Jack-o lantern, you can choose the Skellington. Creating a couple will be even better. The point character of the Skellington is one the eyes and the mouth. Make sure that you carve them well for those two parts. After that, you can add other details such as eyebrow, ribbon, or whatever it is.
