Egg Carton Jack O’Lantern

My 3 yo son and I had a fun day making these yesterday 😀

It is close to our annual Halloween party, so I thought, hey, let’s make new decorations for the party, and we came up with these Jack O’Lanterns 😀

Equipment

  • Egg carton
  • Black, green and orange paints (the non toxic ones from Dollarstore)
  • Paint brush
  • Craft knife or regular knife
  • Double side sticky tape

Instructions

  • Cut the egg carton cavities into singles and paint them orange, let dry
  • Take two singles and stack them bottom end to bottom end, transforming them into a pumpkin. Attach each two with double side sticky tape from the inside. Make a slice on the top for where the stems will be pushed in
  • Cut the egg carton lid into strips and paint them green, these are for the stems, once dry, push them in on the top of the pumpkin
  • Start painting for eyes and scary grins and your scary pumpkins are ready 🙂
  • We place them throughout the house, from dessert table, window, stairs, etc

We did not only make these scary pumpkins, we also made spiders, which I will share the tutorial a bit later.
