Paper Bag Jack-o-lantern Craft

This paper bag pumpkin craft is a great Halloween craft for kids. It is also a great favor for a kids Halloween party! Fill the bag ahead of time with candy or treats and tie it shut. The kids can paint it at the party and then take it home as a goody bag later. After making many paper pumpkin crafts this year, our daughter really enjoyed a more 3-D version and liked using a material that she doesn't often get to craft with.

What you'll need:

  • Paper bag (lunch size)
  • Stuffing - newspaper, candy, other treats
  • Green ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Orange and black paint
  • Paint brushes
How to make your Paper Bag Jack-o-lantern Craft:
  1. Stuff the paper bag so that it is halfway full. Use the green ribbon to tie the bag shut.
  2. Paint the entire bottom half of the bag orange. Leave the top part of the bag (above the ribbon) brown so it looks more like the stem.
  3. When the orange paint is dry, paint on a jack-o-lantern face.
