Materials and Tools:
papier-maché jack-o'-lanterns (available at craft stores)
paint (orange, green and black)
battery-operated white lights (short strands)
wooden plate (available at craft stores)
1/2" wooden dowel
hot glue gun
1. Paint the pumpkins and let dry.
2. Draw the jack-o'-lantern face with a marker, and then cut it out using a utility knife. Cut a hole in the back of the pumpkin large enough for the battery pack of the lights to fit through. Insert the lights.
3. To make each post, drill a pilot hole through the center of a wooden plate and one in the end of the dowel. Attach the two by driving a screw through the plate into the dowel.
4. Paint the post and plate black and let dry. Secure the base of the jack-o'-lantern to the plate using hot glue. Apply a couple coats of polyurethane to the entire project for protection.
