Paper Jack O’Lantern

Let’s “carve us” some Paper Jack O’Lanterns! This is such a fun Halloween craft for kids as it can easily double up as a decoration.

We made toilet paper roll Jack O’Lanterns a few days back and the spooky fun just continues!

Paper Jack'O Lantern - A fun Halloween Craft for Kids

Paper Jack O’Lantern Craft

What you’ll need

  • 2 sheets of orange letter or A4 sized papers
  • black paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • string

Paper Pinwheel

Fold the paper link  an accordion. Fold in half and tie with string. Glue together.

Do the same with the second piece of paper. Now tie them both together and glue them together. You’ve got a paper pinwheel!

Cut the scary (or cute) facial expressions for your Jack O’lantern. Glue them on the pinwheel (white school glue worked out great for us, although I think a low temp glue gun would be even better).

These little pumpkins will look great on windows, doors, walls or hanging from the ceiling twisting and turning in the air.
