  • Lay out five to six sticks and line them up evenly. Take another stick and glue it to the lined up sticks diagonally from the top right corner to the lower left corner.
    Then break or cut another stick in half.
    Glue the pieces of the sticks diagonally on both sides of the stick that you just glued into place.
  • Once the glued together sticks have dried, flip the sticks over and paint the sticks orange. Allow the sticks to dry and give them another coat of paint as needed.
    This is also a good time to paint an additional stick that will be used for the stem. Paint this stick brown.
  • While the paint is drying, you can make the elements for the Jack O Lantern. For the face, simply cut out the features from the template and then trace and cut them from the black craft foam.
  • Turn the glued together sticks over so that the backside is exposed. Glue the brown painted stick into place as the stem. Then take a pipe cleaner and wrap ⅔ of it around your finger to make it curly. Glue the staight third of the pipe cleaner beside the stem.
    Turn the project over so that you are looking at the front. Glue the facial features in place to finish the project.
