Super Easy and Fast Jack O’Lanterns

Hope you all had a good weekend! We’re back with a super fun and super easy way to make a Jack O’Lantern! (And cheap!) All you need is an orange balloon and a black permanent marker.

Step #1.) Blow up the balloon and tie it off.

Step #2.) Draw a Jack O’Lantern face on the balloon.

And you’re done! 🙂 You can tie a string to your Jack O’Lantern and hang it in a door way. Or find some place silly to put him. Like in your mom’s Autumn decorations… 😉

This is such a fast way to make Jack O’Lanterns that you can make a whole bunch of them! You can make a happy face or a scary one or a mean looking one. It’s a fun craft for a Halloween party too! 🙂

Cheap Halloween Craft From Walmart

Hello, again and Happy Monday! Today I want to share an inexpensive Halloween craft with you that I found at Walmart. (I know, it’s still September, but the stores are FULL of Halloween stuff!) This package comes with 6 sets of a foam craft for only $1.98! When 6 kids can do a craft for $2, I think that’s a bargain!

Here’s what comes inside the package…

And these are the 6 Halloween characters you can make.

I made the Jack O’Lantern. The foam pieces are partially cut and they have adhesive on the back of them. I found it a bit difficult to punch the pieces completely out because the paper backing isn’t cut through all the way. But never fear! There is a simple way around that problem!

Use a piece of paper for the kids to stick the pieces on and just pull the foam pieces off the backing like you would do with a regular sticker. Don’t worry about punching each piece out because it isn’t necessary.

Use a different color of paper than the color the largest part of the character is so it will show up nicely.

Continue applying the stickers to make your character. The wiggly eyes do not have the adhesive backing so you will need some glue to apply those.

And the Jack O’Lantern is complete! 🙂 The tiny holes on the word “Boo” were a little tricky to get the extra pieces punched out, but using a toothpick helped.

You could use the picture as it is or turn it into a Halloween card. Have fun creating your 6 Halloween characters! 🙂
