Jack-O-Lantern Round-Up, Foodie and Craft Ideas

As we're gathering ideas for Halloween I wanted to share some of my Jack-O-Lantern themed posts from the last few years. Click the title to be taken to the original post and have fun:@)

Pumpkin Pie Tutorial-Simple pie embellishment with a big impact!
Pin It
Dyed Deviled Eggs-A little orange food coloring is all it takes.

Pumpkin Pickin' Poncho for Barbie-Free Crochet Pattern, add face features with yarn or buttons.
This photo was altered to give you an idea of what the Jack-O-Lantern poncho could look like.

Re-Purposed Light Bulb Ornament Tutorial-Save those burnt out bulbs for a fun craft project.
Or use new bulbs if you have them...

Halloween Tassel Tutorial-Great kids craft party idea!

Simple Cute Dip Bowl-Hollow out a pumpkin and place a glass bowl inside to hold dip.
Use a Sharpie for the face.

And just to be silly...
Never hesitate to play with your food if it will make folks smile:@)

  2. your pie crusts always make me smile!

  3. HI great creative ideas but that guy in the first shot has lost some teeth!!!

  4. I have to tell you that pumpkin pie in the first picture looks adorable and delish! sandie

  5. Lynn,
    You've got me with the deviled eggs. The pumpkin quesadillas look wonderful! And a marshmallow for icing is inspired!
    I just made your Chess Pie recipe. Because I had an 8 inch pan, I had leftover crust, and made some mini pies. Oh. My. Gosh. I just ate 2 of the minis!!! That crust from the cornmeal is wonderful. Now I'm trying to think how to cut back on my dinner, since it's almost time for dinner, and I still have not come up with what to make yet.....
    Thank you!!!

  6. Oh I want a piece of pumpkin pie!!!!!!

  7. You're always full of wonderful inspiration, Lynn. I love those deviled eggs and how you have fun in the kitchen. xo

  8. What cute ideas. I wish I could crochet good enough to make a poncho for my Barbie! heehee!

  9. Fun ideas. I need to start baking.

  10. Thank you for all of the good ideas. I love pumpkins.

  11. You have some great Halloween ideas here, Lynn. I'll be doing well if I get some cookies made but I always enjoy the holiday and how excited the little kids get about trick or treating.

  12. I love the jack-o-lantern face on the pumpkin pie!

  13. I like the pumpkin pie face too!

  14. Hi Lynnie! Cute snaps. Love the pumpkin pie! Yummy, one of my favorites. When my daughter was little, I made Barbie clothes for her all of time and remember crocheting a little poncho too. But heck, I didn't have a jackolantern face on it!
    Be a sweetie,
