Arts & Crafts Fun – Jack O’ Lantern

What you will need:

  • Clean Jam Jars (the bigger the better & make sure your jars are cleaned properly)
  • Orange or yellow tissue paper
  • Decoupage glue or PVA watered down
  • Black paper,
  • Paint brush,
  • Candle or electric tealights


  • Cut your tissue paper into squares – 2inch x 2inch is good)
  • Cover the glass in glue and start applying your tissue paper
  • You will need 3-4 layers – lighter colours like yellow, will need more.
  • Keep adding glue as necessary
  • Cut out some Jack O’ Lantern faces out of black paper
  • Use your decoupage glue and glue them one

Finally, add a final coat of glue and let dry fully!

Have fun with this experiment and adult supervision always.
