Dental Themed Jack-O-Lanterns for Halloween

Now that you’ve picked your pumpkins at one of these Long Island farms, it’s time to start carving! Instead of your typical Jack-O-Lantern, why not try something a bit more challenging – like one of these dental themed designs:

Pumpkin with Braces: Here’s a great tutorial that requires some basic tools, a wire hanger, angle irons, screws, and a pumpkin. Tip: we’ve also seen this completed with soda can tabs instead of the angle irons!


Glow in the Dark Pumpkin Teeth: Purchase a set of Glow-in-the-Dark Buck Teeth to give your pumpkin the perfect toothy grin.

False Teeth Pumpkin: Take a mini pumpkin, carve out a mouth, and set its ‘dentures’ in a glass of water! For the dentures, purchase plastic vampire teeth from your local party store.


Tooth Fairy Pumpkin: Instead of carving, play dress up! Break open the costume trunk to find all the necessary pieces. Add a bag of coins and some toothy accessories to complete the look!
