Easy Repurposed Jack O Lanterns
So many things can be made into repurposed Jack O Lanterns by simply adding faces to them.
Here are three candidates for this quick and easy Halloween project.
A very aged vintage Gem sifter, a lovely copper teapot, and a vintage aluminum coffee pot.
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’m a just wing it kinda gal.
I think this would be a fun way to make repurposed jack o lanterns with kids.
The thicker the chalkboard label, which means its 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! This is such an easy peasy way to make some temporary Halloween fun. Fill them with candy, flowers or whatever you like.
I can think of so many things that could be used as repurposed 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!
What do you have that could be repurposed?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!

Tuula, you have such a great eye! These are just cool, love them to bits – especially the copper kettle, that’s kinda genius!
Thanks Michelle! I do have a thing for copper kettles. The shape of this one was perfect for a jack.
What a great idea! I’m sure I have a few things lying around the house that could be transformed – I’ll bet we all do! I like the coffee pot the most, reminds me of the Tin Man:) xo Kathleen
Thanks Kathleen! The coffee pot kinda reminds me of the tin man too.

So cute and love that you made them with things you had on hand. I have to see what I can find in my stash.
Thanks Sharon! I was looking for a way to make temporary faces and had the chalkboard labels on hand. I like that they’re so easy to remove when I’m done with the jacks.
Tuula, if you aren’t the cleverest, most creative crafter ever. Love these jack o’lanterns, especially the copper kettle. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. Pinned and Facebooked.
