Hi all! Today I will be sharing a Dollar Tree Jack-o-lantern that I created from one of Dollar Tree’s slated wooden signs. I’ve really kicked up my crafting lately. I’ve got a lot of projects started trying to make up for all the lost time over the last seven months. I have even learned something new that I will be sharing at a later time. But I will give you a hint: It’s better than stenciling! Are you confused now? While you think on that let’s get started on this Dollar Tree Jack-o-lantern.

Dollar Tree Jack-o-lantern
I started off by giving my slated wood sign a coat of black chalk paint.
Next, I gave it a coat of orange chalk paint letting some of the black show through. Then using a homemade stencil I added the face of the Dollar Tree Jack-o-lantern. Use some Rust Red paint and an old toothbrush to stipple on the rosy cheeks. A stylus tool was used to add the dots on the cheeks, and the commas in the eyes.
An old toothbrush and black paint were used to splatter the jack-o-lanterns face.
He looks a little bare so I dug through my craft stash and came up with this little straw hat that will work but needs some color. So, I used some of the fabric remnants left from the Halloween Garland from repurposed light bulbs to make some Halloween colored twine.
Then I hot glued the twine on the hat,
and hot glued the hat onto the Shop Halloween Craft Supplies at Dollar Tree Starting at $1.25!” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Dollar Tree Jack-o-lantern. Isn’t he adorable?
