Paper Plate Jack O Lantern Craftfinal

We love this simple Halloween Craft.  This Jack-o-Lantern is an inexpensive Halloween craft project. You may have all of the supplies in your craft supplies!  It is perfect for Halloween parties, play groups and to make with daycare or Home School groups.  I hope you enjoy making it as much as we did!


Paper Plate Jack-o-Lantern:


  • Orange Paper Plates (or while plates paint or colored orange)
  • black yarn
  • black construction paper
  • scissors
  • tape
  • glue


This can be created with an orange paper plate or you/or the children can paint or color a white paper plate orange. Cut the middle out of the plate and save for another project.

Cut out 4 eyes, 2 nose’s and 2 mouth’s of construction paper. Add a piece of yarn the in the middle of each and glue.

You want to do 2 sets so as they turn you don’t see a back-side. Next, tape each to the backside of the plate (see picture).

Punch a hole in the center top of the plate and add a piece of black yarn to hang.
