Acorn Jack O Lantern
I think I have created a monster.  Every afternoon when my daughter gets home from preschool she is now asking what project we are going to do.  The other night I was tired and well not really in the mood to do a project.  But to the pleading of my 4yr old… “Please mommy, please!!”  I finally gave in.

So I sent her out to pick some Acorns (there were a few left that the squirrels had not taken). I saw a picture a while back (and I can’t remember where I saw it) of some Acorn Jack O Lantern’s and I thought that might be a cute project for us.

Check out our FALL and HALLOWEEN boards on Pintrest for more great ideas!


Orange paint
Paint brushes
Black sharpie


After getting all your Acorns, start by paining them orange.  We ended up doing about 3 coats of paint.
 Once your paint dries, use your sharpie to draw faces on your Jack O Lanterns.
Well this was a quick and easy project.  If you have younger children they would probably get a kick out of this one, but it is also fun for the older children too.
I think these would be really cute to put around the table for a Halloween party.  Or a fun craft for the kids to do at the party, because it is great for all ages.  Hope you all have fun making these, we sure did.
