Easy Halloween Jack-O-Lantern Paper Plate Craft

Halloween Jack-O-Lantern craft

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays, I love the fall as well and the season is not the same without Halloween!

To get into the Halloween spirit my little one and I decided to make a cute Jack-O-Lantern decoration for our home. We did our paper plate pumpkin at StrongStart and turned it into a Jack-O-Lantern at home. So much fun!

Halloween Jack-O-Lantern craft

What You Will Need:

  • Black and green construction paper
  • Paper plate
  • Orange paint and paintbrush
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Pen

How To Do It:

  1. Trace a small rectangle for the stem of the pumpkin on the green construction paper and cut it
  2. Glue the green rectangle to the top of the paper plate
  3. Ask your child to paint the entire paper plate orange
  4. Put the plate aside and wait for it to dry
  5. Trace two eyes, nose and a mouth for the jack-o-lanter on the black construction paper, then cut them, get creative!
  6. Glue the eyes, nose and mouth
  7. Glue the finished jack-o-lanter onto a sheet of black construction paper
  8. Use the cute craft to decorate your home and get into the Halloween spirit!

Happy Halloween!

    I do like this and I’m sure that kids would have a lot of fun making these. Each and everyone would also be different which is also good 🙂
