Printable template for pumpkin's facial features



 

Step 1



Paint the bag orange



Obtain a new brown lunch bag (a used lunch bag would probably be too wrinkled and too hard to use).  Paint the bag orange.  Let dry.

 


Step 2



Tape bag with tape like a belt



Bulb end of flashlight is inserted 2 inches in open end of the bag…leaving space between the bag and the light. Draw open end of bag together around flashlight and tape with masking tape or tie with string.  Tape bag with tape like a belt.

***Leave space between the flashlight and the end of the bag so that the paper bag doesn’t sit directly on the light. NEVER LEAVE THE FLASHLIGHT COVERED WHILE UNATTENDED AND TURN OFF WHEN NOT IN USE!!!***

 

Step 3



 Now we will start painting the face



Now we will start painting the face.  Bag may be decorated by using tempera or acrylic paints and/or construction paper.   If you are using paper follow the printable template above.  If construction paper is used, the desired portions of the designs are cut out of the paper and glued to one or more faces of the bag.

 

Step 4



With a thin  black marker draw a line down the center of the bag



With a thin  black marker draw a line down the center of the bag.  Then draw a line curving inwards towards this line… on both sides… as in mine.  While the picture on the paper bag is being designed the flashlight can be lit in a darkened area to obtain the desired effect.

 

Step 5



Use black marker or paint to draw 2 big triangles for eyes and a smaller one for the nose



Use black marker or paint to draw 2 big triangles for eyes and a smaller one for the nose.  You could also cut out these shapes in black construction paper.

 

 Step 6



To make a mouth draw a letter U shape... closed and filled in with black



To make a mouth draw a letter U shape… closed and filled in with black.  To add teeth just push down 2 rectangles into that space… In other words, draw the same exact mouth shape… but add 2 rectangles.

 



Finished Pumpkin Flashlight Cover



And, now you are all ready to go trick or treating safely with your friends this Halloween.  And, keep an eye out for other Halloween Crafts as I will be adding them several times a day.
