Sponge Painted Jack-o-Lanterns


Every year around Halloween, I try to do at least one cute Jack-0-Lantern craft with Lorelai. In the past we did Candy Corn Jack-o-Lantern and a Paper Plate Jack-o-Lantern. Both are ridiculously cute! You can see all of our Halloween Crafts HERE!

To make a pumpkin sponge, I just used scissors and cut it out. It’s really so simple! If your sponges have the hard scrubbing back, just take a sharp knife and slice it off (that’s what I did).
