Making Jack O'Lanterns Out of Junk

August 17, 2014
 Today I am making a Jack o' Lantern out of an old funnel.

First I printed off a Jack o' Lantern face from the internet and cut it out.

Next I traced the face pieces onto a piece of joist panning metal.

After cutting the Jack o' Lantern face out with a tin snips, I spray painted the pieces black.

The great thing about my Jack o' Lantern is that it's all temporary because I am going to attach the pieces with magnets.

 Easy, huh?

 The old funnel is sitting on an old chair.

I tied a little raffia on the funnel, and stuck a few twigs with dried leaves (from our yard) into the stem.

That's it!  An EASY junk jack o' Lantern.
