Costumes, candy and spooky cartoon specials… yep we’re calling it, Halloween is our favourite festive holiday (sorry Santa). Jack-o’lanterns are like so 1999 so we decided to give ours a little millennial makeover and turn them into emojis. That’s right, we invented Jack-0’Mojis!
You Will Need:
- A pumpkin
- A large knife or carving tools
- An ice-cream scooper or big spoon
- Yellow, white, black and red paint
- Paint brushes
Step 1: Start by painting your pumpkin – you’ll need a few layers to get him emoji yellow.
Step 2: Cut a large whole at the top on your pumpkin and don’t forget to keep the top to make the lid. If you’re a jacko newbie then check out this vid for some tips.
Step 2: Time to scoop out those guts! We found using an ice-cream scooper was easiest – try going around the inside of the pumpkin rather than top to bottom.
Step 3: Once you’ve decided which emoji you’re going to be making, pencil the face in as a guide, and then paint the features that you aren’t going to cut out.
Step 4: Carefully use a knife to cut out the mouth. The smaller the knife the easier it will be for you to manoeuvre it.
Uh oh! Things are about to get silly… think these Jack-o’Mojis have gone to our heads.
