We’ve been really enjoying the 3D effect of paper loop crafts lately. It’s so fun to see the craft come to life by popping from the page. These jack-o-lanterns are slightly different as they’re stapled to a brown strip stem. We then added a curly pipe cleaner, too.

To make our Paper Loop Jack-O-Lantern you will need orange paper and brown cardstock. The thin, printer style paper works best for the jack-o-lantern while the brown stem works best if it’s heavier. Also needed are shiny green pipe cleaners, a black marker, a hole punch, scissors, and a stapler.
