Jack o Lantern Wood Decoration

Amazing what you can make with just a paper napkin and a piece of wood. This decoration looks hand painted and is just perfect for decorating the wall or window at Halloween. If you cannot find this particular napkin, seek a napkin with a similar motif. The technique stays the same.



Jack O' Lantern Wall Decoration

Supplies Needed:

4 mm plywood
- paper napkin with a Jack o Lantern motif
- paper napkin applique glue
- wire
- orange raffia
- artificial leaves
- orange wooden beads
- saw for sawing out the motif
- drill with small bit for creating holes in the wood
- orange and black paint for the sides of the motif
- paint brushes


1. First cut out the motif. Then remove all but the top layered napkin.
2. Apply a thin layer of glue to the wood and let it dry a minute. Then place the napkin motif on top of the wood and brush a layer of glue over the entire napkin motif. Start at the middle of the motif and work your way outwards until the entire motif is covered. Let it completely dry before continuing.
3. Once the glue is dry, saw out the motif. Paint the sides with orange and black paint, according to what is on the napkin at that area.
4. Drill a hole through both sides of the motif. Assemble the leaves, beads and raffia on the wire and spiral curl the wire some to hold the elements in place. Then insert the wire ends into the wood and spiral curl the ends to keep them in place.
