Easy Repurposed Jack O Lanterns

So many things can be made into DIY Jack O Lanterns by simply adding faces to them.

Here are three candidates for this quick and easy Halloween project.

I had a bunch of  chalkboard adhesive labels leftover after my craft room baking pan storage organization, so I decided to use some of them.

I randomly cut shapes out of the labels without thinking about it too much, and then I just stuck them on.

You could draw the shapes first and then cut them out if you prefer.

I think this would be a fun way to make DIY jack o lanterns with kids. Very easy and quick too.

The thicker the chalkboard label, which means better quality, the easier it is to remove. The paper thin ones have to be removed with water, but it’s still very easy to do. I got all of my labels at the dollar store.

And that’s it! These fun DIY jack o lanterns are such an easy peasy way to create some temporary Halloween fun. Fill them with candy, flowers or whatever you like.

I can think of so many things that could be made into DIY jack o lanterns… baking pans, flower pots, vases, round light fixtures, trays, enamel bowls… and the list could go on and on.

Don’t forget to pin it!
