Colored with latex paints. Printed paper inserts for the eyes and mouth. A battery operated flickering tealight looks great inside, the light even shines out his nostrils! There is also a small hole in the back to slip in a bulb from a string of lights. The turnip is about 4 inches wide and 6 inches…

Is it me, or do turnip jack o'lanterns look way more frightening than pumpkin jack o'lanterns? They're like shrunken head jack-o-lanterns. How did something like this never occur to me before?
