Halloween craft: House-o'-Lantern


Total Time Needed: 1-2 Hours

When you put a big smile on the face of your haunted house, you're sure to do the same for your trick-or-treaters.


  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Pencils or markers
  • Craft knife
  • Glue stick
  • Orange tissue paper
  • Painter's or masking tape
  • Lamp


  1. Measure the inside of an appropriate window and cut corrugated cardboard to fit tightly. Draw a face on the cardboard, then cut out the pieces with a craft knife (a parent's job).
  2. On the interior side of the cardboard, use a glue stick to cover the openings with orange tissue paper.
  3. Set the cardboard in the window and use painter's or masking tape to hold it in place. Place a lamp near the window to light your house-o'-lantern.
