October 10, 2018 / Inspire

This Halloween give your edible pumpkin a little fiery friend with a homemade pumpkin Jack O’Lantern. This homemade Halloween decoration is surprisingly simple and an effective addition to any home enthused by Halloween.

Step 1: Supplies

To make your pumpkin Jack O’Lantern, you’ll just need the following: a battery-powered tealight, black and orange tissue paper (£1.49), paintbrushes (£0.99), a balloon, a black marker pen (£2.89) and PVA Glue (£1.99)

Step 2

Blow up the balloon until it is big enough to fit the battery-powered tealight inside it.

Step 3

Paste strips of orange tissue paper to the bottom half of the balloon, sticking them on with the glue.

Step 4

Leave this to dry for 24 hours. Then, pop the balloon and peel it out, leaving the shaped tissue paper in its place.

Step 5

Use your Sharpie pen to give the pumpkin a face. Make it as scary as you like!

Step 6

Place your battery-powered tealight inside the Jack O’Lantern and place on a window sill or fireplace for full effect.

Top Tip

Place a couple of these pumpkin Jack O’Lanterns on either side of a real pumpkin to really make an impact.
