Easy Jack ‘o’ Lanterns

For cheap jack-o-lantern decorations that will last past Halloween, cover clean, empty jars with orange construction paper or tissue paper. Add features with black construction paper, then pop in a tea candle—with flames, or battery-operated—and watch your “pumpkin” glow.

Can’t wait to show of your designs this Halloween? Be sure to register your home on the Trick or Treat Me Map this Halloween season so all the little ghosts and ghouls know where to find you!
