Looking for a quick and easy Halloween craft project? I have a fun Jack-O-Lantern Door Hanger for you today. 🎃
My pumpkin cutout came from Dollar Tree. It measures about 12-inches wide by 10-inches tall including the stem. The Jack-O-Lantern face pieces came from the Dollar Spot section at Target and were already painted black. 🙂

You’ll need some orange, green and brown acrylic paint (here’s a great set if you need paints). I added some raffia to my Jack-O-Lantern so you’ll need a bit of that, too.
Using a foam brush, I painted 2 coats of orange paint on both sides and the edge of my pumpkin and green on the stem. Painting the back is optional depending on where you plan to hang your Jack-O-Lantern. I like to paint both sides to give it a more finished look.
After the paint was completely dry, I dry brushed some brown paint over the entire pumpkin and stem. (I used a chip brush with the bristles trimmed shorter for dry brushing.) I hot glued the Jack-O-Lantern face pieces to the pumpkin. Then I cut some raffia, tied it with natural jute twine in the center, and hot glued it to the pumpkin near the stem.
The pumpkin came with twine tied through the hole at the top for hanging. But if you accidentally cut it (like I did 🙄) while cutting off the tag, just tie on another piece of twine. 😉
I think he turned out so cute! 🎃
If you can’t find the Jack-O-Lantern face pieces, you could always paint a face onto your pumpkin or cut pieces from felt and glue them on.
Happy Halloween Crafting! 🎃
This came out really cute.
