Jack o Lantern Bottle
I love these little Jack o Lanterns - easy to make and so cute as decorations for your Halloween table.
- Battery Operated Tealight (optional)
- Black Paper
- Green Ribbon (or Green Paper cut in strips)
- Orange Tissue Paper
- Paint Brush
- School Glue (e.g. Elmers)
- Small Plastic Water Bottle - washed and dry
- Cut the bottom off of the plastic water bottle
- Tear a sheet of orange tissue paper into lots of little pieces
- Put some glue into a plastic bowl and using a paint brush paint the entire surface of the bottle with glue
- Place a piece of tissue paper on the water bottle. Continue until the whole bottle is covered in tissue paper
- Glue a green ribbon around the neck of the bottle (to form the pumpkin stem)
- Cut out face shapes (eyes, nose, mough) from black paper, and stick on the bottle.
- Place the empty bottle on top of a battery operated tealight and let your jack o lanter shine!
- WARNING: Never try to put a real candle inside a plastic bottle - fire could result.
- The smaller you tear the tissue pieces, the better for this activity.
