Egg Carton Pumpkin Treat

Make these little treat pumpkins and place one on each of your classmates desks on Halloween.

Supplies Needed:

  • Egg carton
  • Paint (orange and black)
  • Paint brush
  • Pipe cleaner (green)
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Step #1:

Trim two shells of the egg carton so they will site well on top of each other. 

Paint each one in orange paint. Set them aside to dry.

Step #2:

Cut a piece of a pipe cleaner (how ever long you want the stem of your pumpkin to be). 

Twirl it around the end of your paint brush (or finger). 

Step #3:

Once the egg cartons are dry, carefully punch a hole in the top of one of them with your scissors. 

Step #4:

Thread your pipe cleaner stem into the hole you just punched and bend it on the inside to keep it in place. You can also glue it to make sure it stays put.

Step #5:

Find the side that you want as the front of your pumpkin.

Paint a jack o’lantern face onto this side. Put the eyes on the top half and the mouth on the bottom.

Now you have yourself a cute mini pumpkin you can give to your parents, teacher, classmates or friends!


Pick out some candy or treat that fits nicely inside and fill the little pumpkin up.

We are all ready to say HAPPY HALLOWEEN to all our friends!
