You can start by just simply sticking a candle at the top of your Halloween pumpkin, making it look like the ghost of Halloween. Next, you might decide to stick a real candle inside of the Jack-O-Lantern. At the same time, you can also use some stained glass to decorate your Jack-O-Lantern with a stained glass shade. Then, of course, you can add some decorations to your Halloween pumpkin by using some foil windchimes, a small lantern, or a lit candle inside the Jack-O-Lantern.
