Paper Bag Jack O'Lantern

Why not try this craft at a Halloween party? Then the kids can fill their own bag up with treats and prizes to take home at the end! Alternatively, stand it up (out of the rain) with an electric candle inside, for an effective Jack O'Lantern...

Paper Bag Jack O'Lantern

You will need:

A white or brown kraft gift bag
Orange paint
Electric tea light


  • Draw a pumpkin face on the front of the bag.
  • Cut out the face. An adult may want to do this for younger children.
  • Paint the bag orange.  You will either need to do this in sections or pop a box inside to help the bag keep it's shape as it will get soft when wet.
  • Pop an electric tealight inside.
