Build a Jack O’Lantern from Lego Bricks

Colorful Lego Brick Pumpkin

This year, bring on the Halloween joy (and avoid the traditional pumpkin carving mess) by building a colorful little Lego Pumpkin Jack O’ Lanter.

Add a battery-operated tea light for night-time festivities, too! We’re using our collection of Lego Jack O’Lanterns as bedtime night lights!

Maybe you’re thinking, this is cute, but I’m a traditionalist. I’ll need an orange Jack O’ Lantern….

For this Lego build, we also started off thinking we’d make a traditional orange jack o’ lantern, but we wound up falling woefully short in the orange Lego brick department.

My advice: If you’re determined to build an orange pumpkin jack o’ lantern, make sure to prepare ahead of time. Perhaps check out ordering the Lego Classic Orange Creativity Box 1070 as this set includes 60 orange Lego pieces.

Onto Our Jack O’ Lantern Build Tips

Build Your Lego Pumpkin’s Stem

From a simple 2-brick stem to a movable vine with leaves stem, the possibilities are endless. Give your Pumpkin Jack O’ Lantern a little pizzazz by building a creative pumpkin stem.

Build a Hinged Door

You’ll want to add a hinged door to the back of your Lego Pumpkin Jack O’ Lantern so that you can access your battery operated tea light.

It goes without saying that a lit wax candle would melt your Legos and be a fire hazard, right?!?!

Here’s a close-up of we created a two-layer hinged door.
