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)
Blow up the balloon until it is big enough to fit the battery-powered tealight inside it.
Paste strips of orange tissue paper to the bottom half of the balloon, sticking them on with the glue.
Leave this to dry for 24 hours. Then, pop the balloon and peel it out, leaving the shaped tissue paper in its place.
Use your Sharpie pen to give the pumpkin a face. Make it as scary as you like!
Place your battery-powered tealight inside the Jack O’Lantern and place on a window sill or fireplace for full effect.
Place a couple of these pumpkin Jack O’Lanterns on either side of a real pumpkin to really make an impact.
