Jack o Lantern Trio - Picture of Jack o Lantern Trio by night >>>

This woodcraft project is more time consuming to make but well worth the effort. Not only does it look good in the daylight, but also has a great spooky look to it by night when a couple of tea lights are lit behind it.

Wooden Jack o Lantern Trio Pattern





Instructions: (see picture for placement of elements)

1. Print out the pattern for the pumpkins.
2. Glue the smaller wood piece to the front of the base piece. This will raise the height of the Jack o Lanterns so that the tea lights are not directly behind them.
3. Paint the Jack o Lantern figures orange and the base pieces dark green. Let all pieces dry.
4. If you would like, dry brush the pieces with darker contrasting colors like brown, green or red. Sprinkle these contrasting colors also onto the pieces using an old toothbrush to give them an used look to it. Let dry.
5. Drill now a hole through the front of the base piece on each side through both layers of wood .
6. Mark matching holes on your pumpkins and drill into the bottom of them and then screw the base piece to the pumpkins.
7. The width of the base piece behind the pumpkins is deep enough to place tea light candles on to. This looks great when the room is dark.
