Jar-o'-lanterns - Image Collection

After the required tape has been placed carefully on this candleholder, your artist can be as messy as she likes covering it with pumpkin-orange paint.

What you'll need

  • masking tape
  • clean, dry jar
  • paintbrush
  • orange acrylic paint
  • battery-operated tea light

How to make it

  1. Cut masking tape into simple jack-o'-lantern face shapes, such as triangles and squares.

  2. Invite your young helper to create a face with the shapes on the side of a clean, dry jar. Have her brush the outside with orange acrylic paint.

  3. After the paint dries, carefully remove the tape shapes. For a cleaner line, first peel up the corners of the shape.

  4. Light your jar-o'-lantern with a battery-operated tea light.
