What a bright and interesting collection of pumpkin luminaries. The first one is maybe too colourful for me, I loved the ghost one but they were all similar so the third batch was my favourite. I'd stick to something neutral and bright like the ghost luminaries but also add the vibrance monsters of the third. A party decoration is never complete without lighting.

I don't even "do" Halloween, but those are so cute that I am tempted to try it anyway. I wonder how they would look if I removed the paint from the features so the light would shine through them? I am not sure how to do it, though! Maybe paste paper features inside the jars before painting, then remove them?
