  1. Print and cut out the paper templates and pin them to the sheets of foam.  Use the serrated knife to cut out each of the pumpkins and to carve out the faces.

  2. Paint the pumpkins black on all sides and let dry.  Paint the inside cut edge of the faces yellow and let dry.

  3. Cut pieces of orange tissue paper and glue it to the backs of the pumpkin faces.  This will give the light an orange glow.

These Glowing Jack O'Lantern Silhouettes are so awesome. I thought they were hard to do but with this project, I found out that it is easy to do. I was excited to see templates of the faces and how to finish the whole project. My grandaughter will love to do this for their Halloween decor in school and at home. Thanks for the idea.
