How to Make Lighted Origami Jack O'Lanterns

These are super easy to make, and once you get the hang of it you'll be able to make dozens in a short time. An old manager taught me how to make these what seems like ages ago, and now I always have to make them every Halloween! It wasn't until this year that I added the lights, such a brilliant idea!

Watch the video below and get your pumpkin making groove on!

Other fun alternatives to the pumpkin:

  • use white paper and make ghosts
  • use green paper and make witches (can add a hat and broomstick too)
  • use white or yellow paper and paint black cats on the outside (make sure it's thin enough for the light to shine through)
  • cut patterns, or other shapes
  • can be used for a multitude of other holidays (christmas, easter, birthdays!)

Those are just a few of the ideas I came up with, but the possibilities are endless. Have and get creating!
