Paper Plate Pumpkin Mask

Materials Needed:
  • paper plate
  • orange crayon
  • scissors
  • black marker
  • craft stick
  • clear tape
  • brown construction paper
  • green construction paper
  • green pipe cleaner

  1. Using an orange crayon, color the back of a paper plate. (You could also use paint or marker.)
  2. Using a black marker, draw a face on the pumpkin, making sure that the eyes are toward the center or even a bit lower. (If the eyes are too high it makes it awkward for a child to hold the handle and look through the mask.)
  3. Cut out eyes only. (We tried cutting out the nose and mouth, but it looks weird against your face.)
  4. Tape craft stick to opposite side of plate to make the handle.
  5. Cut* out a stem from brown construction paper and a leaf from green construction paper and glue onto the plate. 
  6. Curl* a green pipe cleaner around your finger (or a pencil) to make a vine. Tape to plate. (*optional)
