Let’s Get Started……

Jack O Lantern Shells




  1. Pick medium to large shells from the Bucket O’Shells. Bucket O'Shells, Hygloss
  2. Paint a base coat on each shell. Pick a variety of colors. Remember pumpkins and Jack O’Lanterns don’t have to be orange. Let dry. Jack O Lantern ShellsJack O Lantern Shells
  3. Draw a fun Jack O’Lantern face onto each painted shell using a pencil.
  4. Fill in your pencil drawing with paints. Add final details with a fine tip sharpie. Jack O Lantern ShellsJack O Lantern Shells


  • You could use regular sharpies or paint pens instead of paint.
  • Add a piece of ribbon or twine to your shells using tacky glue. Hang up on a Halloween tree or around the house.
  • Glue all your shells to a wreath base for a fun Halloween wreath.

This is a great project to do with the kids. Use it as an activity to introduce how pumpkins are grown. Discuss the origins of Jack O’Lanterns and how the tradition of trick or treating started.
