With Halloween just around the corner you may soon--if you haven’t already--be in search of the perfect pumpkin to carve into a Jack-o-lantern to place on the porch or front window.

These are the five designs available from the downloadable patterns. Take it a step further and use flameless LED votive candles to illuminate your pumpkins.

October is National Energy Action Month and these Jack-o-lanterns are a great way to talk to your family and neighbors about ways you can save energy and maximize energy efficiency inside your home.
