With Halloween just around the corner I wanted to share with you just a few Quick and Easy Diy Jack-O-Lanterns, that can be made within a couple hours. These jack-o-lantern pumpkins are each made out of different material. Two are made out of tin cans, one a glass jar, and the other four are made out of a wood 4″ x 6″ piece of wood cut at different lengths.

Quick and Easy Diy Jack-O-Lanterns
These little jack-o-lanterns are a great way to use up some of your empty tin cans, and jars. Add some wire and they make great treat containers. The glass jar could be made into a lantern by adding a little orange paint to Mod Podge then painting the jar with that. Instead of using straight orange paint. (Sample Here)
For these block Jack-o-lanterns I first painted them then I drilled a hole for adding a wood twig for the stem.
I didn’t have any green raffia, so I painted some regular raffia.
I crumpled the raffia up then tied it around the stems. Not so sure that I like the raffia, if I hadn’t already taken it to my booth I think that I would swap it out for some fabric strips. Do you think that fabric strips would look better instead of the raffia?
