Girlie Skull and Crossbones Jack-O-Lantern

Halloween is nearly upon us!!! Only a week and a half away now! 
It’s one of my favorite holidays! The candy, the decorations, the costumes!
Carving pumpkins, though, has to be the ultimate Halloween activity. ๐Ÿ™‚

A couple of years ago… 
Before this Truly Lovely blog, my college roommate, Charli, and I carved up a lovely pumpkin. A Girlie Skull and Crossbones Jack-o-Lantern, or Jill-o-Lantern as it were, with a hair bow! ๐Ÿ™‚

Isn’t she fabulous!
We found a picture we wanted to imitate online, blew it up on the computer and printed it out. 
Then we traced it with a pencil onto our pumpkin and cut it out. 

Definitely an easy and fun way to get a unique Halloween Jack-O-Lantern!

It’s still one of my favorites from Halloweens past! 
What about you?? Are you carving pumpkins this year?? 
Do you have a favorite method for getting a fun Jack-O-Lantern?

Linking this here and here and .


  1. Love it!!!!!
    I gave up on carving and broke out the drill {which you saw on my blog :)}. My "carved" pumpkins never come out right, I get too impatient ๐Ÿ™‚

    That is so cute! I love girly crossbones. You did a good job too! I am so bad at carving, and have only done the standard jack-o-lantern ones. None this year, so have fun for me!

    This is awesome. I wish I could carve pumpkins this year! I like to print out designs, tape them to the pumpkin, and then use the poker thingy and then the little saw blade. My family LOVES to carve pumpkins together, and we always decorate together. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Stopping by from Weekend Wander. That is really cute ๐Ÿ™‚ I don't think I'll get around to carving a pumpkin this year but this is a fun one to think about for next time!
