Jack Skellington is the pumpkin king of Halloween Town in Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Jack Skellington’s strangely skeletal smile can make a very spooky or ironically funny pumpkin carving. A Jack Skellington pumpkin is also very simple to carve. There are several websites online that sell Jack Skellington Halloween pumpkin carving patterns or that will allow you to print them for free.

Picasa Web Albums
You can find plenty of pictures of Jack Skellington Halloween pumpkin carvings on the Picasa Web Albums website. If you’re sufficiently skilled at pumpkin carving, you can print them out and use them as a guide for carving your own Jack Skellington pumpkin. Keep in mind that the curved shape of most pumpkins distorts the shape of the carving so that the outer edge of the carving is smaller than it should be. You can use the fisheye lens correction tool in your photo editing software program to correct this problem. For best results, use a picture of the Jack Skellington pumpkin carving taken in a darkened room while the pumpkin was lit from within.
