Paper bag pumpkin

By Veronique Christensen — Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

This is an easy Halloween project for young ones, and another winner from our school’s Harvest Festival. All you need is a paper lunch bag, some orange paint, a bit or string and a scrap of green paper.

Fill your bag with whatever scraps are overflowing from your recycling bin (as ours usually is, unfortunately). Tie shut with string looped through a green paper leaf (easy to cut out), and paint bright pumpkin orange.

Sit back and admire your handy work :-)

If you’re feeling mighty ambitious, you can paint on a Jack O’Lantern face with black paint after the orange has dried.
